"Martha Ackmann came to my Communications class and engaged students in a tranformative manner. My students are mostly first-generation college enrollees who could understand the challenge each Mercury 13 woman faced:  going into unknown territory, full of hope and fear, against staggering odds. Ms. Ackmann connected with the students as she talked about NASA, but she also shared with them the message that a passion for a subject opens doors for people. She impressed them with her belief that people who strive reach heights beyond even their own expectations."
