STARBASE Goodfellow began back in August 2016, when the idea of Goodfellow AFB sponsoring a STARBASE program was introduced. Like many projects, it took a while to get the program introduced to other community organizations that would benefit from the program and to make sure there was community support. After months of discussion a proposal was sent to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs to gain permission and funding to develop STARBASE Goodfellow. In June 2017, representatives from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense visited Goodfellow AFB to check out the facilities that would hopefully become the STARBASE building and meet with base and community leaders. In August 2017, the 17 TRW at Goodfellow AFB and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts signed a Memorandum of Agreement to host and manage the STARBASE Goodfellow program. STARBASE Goodfellow staff was interviewed in late August and began their first day on September 1, 2017. STARBASE Goodfellow was able to hold its first class the week of September 25-29, 2017 and graduated 21 students for FY 2017. Following this first class, STARBASE Goodfellow has now graduated 902 students from 13 different San Angelo Independent School District schools and three Private schools. In the coming days, students from three more local Private Schools and 4 more SAISD schools will also graduate from the STARBASE program. Next year, STARBASE Goodfellow will be adding TLCA and hopefully some other surrounding schools to our program.
