Mary Golda Ross was a well-known aerospace engineer and mathematician. She is now being honored with a new statue dedicated to her achievements and services in the STEM sector.
They unveiled the statue on International Day of Women and Girls in Science, February 11, as part of a collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar, OLAY, at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to celebrate women in STEM.
The statue will be exhibited at the Oklahoma First Americans Museum, where Mary grew up. The addition to the museum will honor Mary, a Cherokee Nation member, and inspire future generations of children to achieve their ambitions. However, many of Mary’s achievements have gone unnoticed for too long.
