Local AAUW Member Talks STEM With Miss America

STEM education for girls is one of Miss America Mallory Hagan's chief causes.

At a pre-Inauguration event Friday, newly crowned Miss America 2013, Mallory Hagan addressed a large audience gathered at the FAA for a Federal Open House and Program Mentoring and STEM.

She spoke passionately about STEM education for girls, which along with her personal issue will be the chief cause during her reign.

AAUW Herndon Reston memember, Elizabeth Vandenburg, who co-leads the Mid-Atlantic Girls Collaborative (MAGiC) and serves on the AAUW National STEM task force, thanked Miss America for giving girls and STEM a voice.

“She is passionate, articulate and she can carry an important educational message about girls and STEM to girls everywhere,” said Vandenburg.

Elizabeth is persistent in her message about girls and STEM. That she spoke directly to Miss America does not surprise me. May something fruitful come from this exchange!

There aren't enough acronyms in this article. Federal Open House and Program Mentoring should have been changed to "FOH and PM." Then the sentence would have been much easier to understand: "Mallory Hagan addressed a large audience gathered at the FAA for a FOH and PM and STEM.'
