"It was Bolden's first official visit as NASA administrator, but he's been to Huntsville before. He spent a year in training for shuttle missions with his dear friend and former astronaut Dr. Jan Davis. They flew together on STS-60. On Wednesday,Davis confirmed to WAFF 48 News that she's a candidate for Marshall's top job-center director - a position opened when Dave King stepped down in March. When asked if he was nearing the finalization of picking Marshall's new director, Bolden said,"Close, very close."

"I am a candidate. There are several qualified candidates in the running for this position, and that is about all I can say," Davis told The Times while attending the 2009 Space and Missile Defense Conference and Exhibition at the Von Braun Center. Davis could not comment on whether she would take the position or not, she said."
