Welcome to Partners for Stennis & Michoud

Partners for Stennis & Michoud is a volunteer group who advocate for space, earth and ocean exploration. Our members are from regional Chambers of Commerce, economic development foundations, businesses, educational institutions, local governments, community groups and individual citizens who desire to encourage development of NASA Stennis Space Center and Michoud Assembly Facility. We promote the economic, technical and academic growth and stability of the Center through projects which insure that government decision makers, business interests, and interested citizens know of the value and importance of the center.
