Douglas Britt, who graduated from Westside in 1964, was an Executive of Dynamac International, Inc. and its subsidiary, the Dynamac Corporation for 28 years. He served as its President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) for 16 years, including its merger with Consolidated Safety Services (CSS) in 2010.

Britt twice received NASA’s Public Service Medal, the highest honor NASA can bestow on a non-civil servant – once for helping design and manage the Space Life Science Laboratory in Exploration Park, FL, and once for his management of the John F. Kennedy Space Center’s Life Science Services Contract.
