Since arriving at WPI three years ago, the community has come to know President Laurie Leshin as a STEM star. But for a few days this month, she’s a constellation.
Leshin was one of 12 women scientists and engineers uniquely honored by GE on Tuesday evening (Sept. 19), with the iconic stars on the ceiling of Grand Central Terminal in New York reconfigured into constellations depicting each of the honorees. The 750,000 people who pass through Grand Central Terminal daily are able to see and take photos of the three-day light show exhibit, which runs through today (Sept. 21).
"I'm so excited to see the creative way that our partners at GE are honoring women's leadership in STEM,” said Leshin. “To be included among the group being highlighted is truly a thrill for me."
