Book Launch: Sylvia Acevedo presents Path to the Stars: My Journey from Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist
With guests from Girl Scouts of Greater New York
Reception to follow
Sylvia Acevedo has worn many hats: engineer at IBM, rocket scientist at NASA, award-winning entrepreneur, businesswoman, commissioner on the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, and, currently, CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA. In her new book Path to the Stars, Sylvia’s memoir aimed at young readers, she retraces her journey from her upbringing in an underprivileged New Mexico neighborhood to her position today as one of the most accomplished and insightful women in modern history. Greenlight is honored to host Sylvia in an inspiring event for all ages, followed by a reception featuring lemonade and Girl Scout cookies to celebrate the book’s launch, with special guests from Girl Scouts of Greater New York!
Please note the early start time for this event, which is open to children and adults (Girl Scouts and their families are encouraged to attend).
