On the fourth anniversary of Dr. Woodie Flowers' passing, we invite the entire FIRST® community to celebrate and honor his life. Woodie collaborated with FIRST founder Dean Kamen on the development of the FIRST® Robotics Competition. Woodie was also critical to establishing the ethos of FIRST by coining the term Gracious Professionalism® and nurturing its meaning in his every action.
Through his unwavering kindness and compassion, Woodie taught us how to be inspiring role models to all, a true friend, and a positive STEM champion. Together, we walk forward carrying his legacy by remembering and sharing his impact.
Join us Thursday, October 12, on social media for Walk Like Woodie Day to share how you're following in Woodie's footsteps using #WalkLikeWoodie.
