Sally Ride 

Sally K. Ride is nominated and approved for membership based on;

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.
