A graduate of Reading High School wants students to know a truly "out of this world career" is within reach.

Charles Morrison is an IT analyst for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

He returned to his alma mater on Monday to talk to students about his career and about the successes that await those who dream big and work hard.

"Opportunity is hopefully going to be there for them if they can demonstrate their skills and achieve. They should end up where I'm at, or greater," said Charles Morrison.

Morrison is a 1995 graduate of Reading High School. He studied aerospace engineering at Purdue University.
