Patricia McMath


Nichelle, you changed the lives of little girls everywhere. Your confidence, courage, and ability to hold your own in a room full of men inspired me to be the science geek I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a trailblazer and listening to MLK. Girls of all colours realized "WE COULD" because of your example. You inspired me to become a feminist, and I have longed for a world of equality, such as I saw on ST. We are proud of you, Nichelle. Rest peacefully now. We love you.
