Path to the Stars

Sylvia Acevedo's new memoir, Path to the Stars: My Journey from Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist, relays the importance of persistence, hard work, and never losing sight of your dreams. Her visit at Bailey Middle School, with almost 500 students, parents, and local Girl Scouts, shared this wisdom through stories of her childhood, attending Stanford, working at NASA, and becoming the CEO of the Girl Scouts.

Acevedo also spoke to the importance of having books available that show the strength of girls and women and their ability to achieve anything they want to achieve. All in all, it was an inspirational visit with a rocket scientist, author, and business executive who has broken through many glass ceilings!

"I never miss a layup."
