The Maryland Women's Heritage Center provides and invaluable service to the State of Maryland by serving as a focus for women to expand their horizons. This year, in partnership with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, they have provided many young women with examples of the many opportunities available in STEM careers. We need to increase the number of women in STEM careers and this partnership has provided a very effective model for that stimulus.

It has been my pleasure and privilege to work with Linda Shevitz and Jill Moss Greenberg for over 30 years in promoting multicultural women's history. They are both extraordinary educational leaders and have done essential work in ensuring that the stories of all women will be told. Their pioneering work in creating women's history student essay contests for Maryland's school children has encouraged generations of students to discover the courage, determination, and strength of women in their own families, their own communities, as well as throughout the nation. As outstanding educators in the field of multicultural women's history they have encouraged educators, historians, and librarians to expand the focus of their curriculum and research. Few others have had such an impact on multicultural women's history from pre-school to graduate studies. Their ability to generate so much with such limited financial support is a model for the rest of the nation. The countless awards received from administrators, colleagues, and public officials testify to their extraordinary dedication, which has provided inspiration, motivation and resources to so many Their visionary work can be seen in what they have already established as the Maryland Women's Heritage Center. This Center not only provides the opportunity to learn about the exemplary contributions of Maryland women, but also offers the inspiration to discover family and community history and the strength that comes from knowing this history.
