Sally K. Ride is nominated and approved for membership
Sally Ride is nominated and approved for
membership based on her contributions to science, co-author of children’s
scientific literature, founding Sally Ride Science, and for her place as a
role model to women and young girls. The first nomination for Sally was
received prior to her passing. The nomination was from a young lesbian who
chose to follow her career dreams in the U.S. Military in part based on the
inspiration Sally Ride provided by following her own dreams in becoming the
first American woman to fly in space. The nomination was made by a member of
the GLBT community who wished to nominate Sally Ride as an inspiration for all
women. The nomination was not made indicating that Sally was a GLBT community
member. Which to the woman making the nomination was all that much more
powerful. After the passing of Sally Ride we did receive two more nominations
from a grateful community.
"You inspired me to reach my dreams!"
"From a grateful community"
"You soared, now we soar because of you!"
