FHS Salutes Women

In honor of Women’s History Month, 30 girls from the high school attended the “Salute to Women” program at the Cradle of Aviation museum in March.

The event, which honors women in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), featured a panel of extraordinary individuals, including Patricia Harron, assistant director of Imaging Services at Good Samaritan Hospital; Jade Kukula, a satellite systems specialist from Lockheed Martin who supports the Hubble Space Telescope; and Kirby Periera, a scientist at Northwell Health Medical Laboratory. News12 anchor Carol Silva served as the Master of Ceremonies. Following their insightful speeches and presentations, the women fielded questions from the students about their respective fields and achievements.
The event served to honor successful and hardworking women as role models for the students during Women’s History Month.
