In the event's program Dr. Inga is described as, "Recognized STEM educator, leader and mentor in Hartford Public Schools, developing multiple STEM initiatives including co-chairing the design and implementation of a Blue Ribbon K-8 STEM magnet school."
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame describe themselves and their mission: We are "an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls.
Founded in 1994 in Hartford, Conn., the Hall fills the void that traditional curricula still fail to address and, today, stands as the state’s premier source for Connecticut women’s history with more than a hundred Inductees. These women’s lives and accomplishments are celebrated and documented through a wide spectrum of innovative statewide programs offered free of charge to Connecticut citizens.
Our primary goal is to provide role models to women of all ages, encouraging them to recognize their potential and live their dreams."
Congratulations, Dr. Inga!
