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.
