This month in Connection, correspondent Leslie Watts explores the transformation of a Nassau Bay house belonging to P.J. Campagna and husband Shon Corrier.

What makes this home renovation project stand out is how representative the couple and the house are of the Clear Lake area. It captures the innovation and ingenuity of the people who live here now and those who launched local communities years ago.

Campagna grew up in the house in the early 1960s, the dawning of the nation’s Space Age when her neighborhood was quickly becoming home to scores of scientists, astronauts and, like her father, engineers. At the time, the house was a showplace for technology. Today, the couple is incorporating cutting-edge and ecologically sound design in the house, again making it the home of the future.

Innovation and creativity define the Clear Lake area. Consider that this issue also contains an article about Boeing Space Exploration and NASA marking another milestone in development of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft with the installation of training and simulator systems at Johnson Space Center.

It all starts with education. And you’ll also learn more about what the Clear Creek Independent School District is contributing to the region.

Such stories about people, businesses and educators in the Clear Lake region are exactly what we want to capture in these pages and online each month. If you have a story you think we should tell, please contact me at

I look forward to hearing from you.
