Bill Pate


Ms.Nichols was one of the first Black people I ever saw on TV as a child. She was awesome. Later when it came to my attention that she was very instrumental in encouraging racial equality in the NASA family. I very much admire her kind words and warm personality. She will truly be missed. God speed Ms. Nichols.
