It is with immense pride that I honor my wife, Mrs. Sha’Rell Webb for this recognition. Sha’Rell was the first African American to be named an Education Specialist for NASA’s Lunar and Planetary Institute in its history! In this role, she collaborated with various scientists who conducted Planetary Science Research and Space Sciences. Firing her boss to follow her dreams of entrepreneurship and with a strong personal conviction that youth can do “Amazing Things” with the proper encouragement and guidance, Mrs. Webb founded Coding with a Twist, LLC. Coding With a Twist is an organization committed to introducing the underestimated to the world of computer science, coding, robotics and all things STEM.

As an educator, Sha’Rell has an uncanny knack for inspiring and motivating all children to learn, to include children with disabilities. She uses this skill set to develop customized curriculum for children on the autism spectrum. She believes that early exposure is key."
