Annie Easley Annie Easley Computer Scientist Annie Easley was born on April 23, 1933 in Birmingham, Alabama. Ms. Easley has worked for National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Lewis Research Center and its predecessor agency (NACA) in Cleveland, Ohio since 1955. Her computer applications are used to identify energy conversion systems that offer the improvement over commercially available technologies.

Bryan Busby Meteorologists I love my job. It was a childhood dream of mine to be doing TV weather. Since the third grade, this is what I wanted to do. I have a blast up there and I hope it shows," Bryan said. Since coming to KMBC 9 NEWS in 1985, Bryan quickly established himself as Kansas City's leading meteorologist.. Bryan has put KMBC-TV on the "weather map" with innovative programs like "Guaranteed Weather," "EarthStation," "Weather-To-Go," "Bryan Goes to School," and "Instant Weather Network."
Roscoe L. Koontz: Health Physicist Scientist Roscoe Koontz was among the first formally trained Health Physicists by participated in the first Atomic Energy Health Physics Fellowship Training Program, in 1948. He designed a pinhole gamma ray camera and collimator and helped to design and make automatic air and water sampling equipment and radiation activity measuring devices.
Charles Henry Turner: Zoologist, Entomologist Charles Henry Turner was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on February 3, 1867. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1907, the first African American to earn a doctoral degree in Zoology. He is credited with being the first researcher to prove that insects can hear and can also distinguish pitch. Charles H. Turner published during his career forty-nine papers on invertebrates.
