" Martha 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."

"Martha Ackmann is a gifted storyteller who
captivated the Cabrini College audience with her
tale of the Mercury 13. The powerful saga
of these heroines has a voice and advocate in
the person of Dr. Ackmann. The tenacity, courage
and strength of the Mercury 13 stand as an
eternal monument to all those who seek and
struggle for equality."
