EARLY INSPIRATION — Sandia materials engineer Laura Montoya Ashton’s first Family Day in 1992 included a look at a parabolic trough solar installation from atop her mom Catherine’s shoulders at Sandia’s National Solar Thermal Testing Facility. Family Day is Saturday, Sept. 7, in New Mexico, and Saturday, Sept. 14, in California. Active employees can visit the internal Family Day website to register by Friday, Aug. 30.
