Mount Holyoke alumna Kaitlin Cashin is the face of the U.S. Space Force’s new recruitment ad.
Cashin, who graduated in 2019 with a major in physics, a minor in politics and a Nexus in journalism, is working in the U.S. Air Force public affairs office as a second lieutenant.
Cashin’s former professor, Andrew G. Reiter, recalls her drive and dynamic personality in the classroom. “I always said that the sky’s the limit for Katie, but I may have been thinking too low!” said Reiter, associate professor of politics and chair of the department. He was among a number of other proud Mount Holyoke faculty who attended Cashin’s commissioning ceremony into the Air Force.
“When you look at a star you are looking back in time, but I see the future,” Cashin says in the ad. “I see myself. The future is where I’ll make history.”
