Homer Hickam's Partners Offer Ahmed a Trip to Space Camp

re: this story http://www.democraticunderground.com/10141208222

I contacted Hickam about this story because I read about his response to a similar situation faced by Kiera Wilmot a couple of years ago. Her story is here-

http://abcnews.go.com/US/cleared-charges-honor-student-space-camp/story?id=19236561

Mr Hickam was probably already on it because he emailed back:

My co-creators of www.rocketboysthemusical.com are offering Ahmed a
scholarship to Space Camp.

3. I just can't wait to tell my dad I heard back from him about something

We're from a spot in WV near where Hickam lived when he was arrested. Dad's a huge fan!
