Ranking Member Johnson Issues Statement on the Passing of Dr. Sally Ride


Location: Washington, DC

Ranking Member Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) issued the following statement after hearing that Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, had died.

"I am profoundly saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Sally Ride. She was inspiration to all of us, especially young women. Beyond her work at NASA, she provided distinguished service on a number of important national advisory commissions. At the same time, I believe one of her most lasting influences was through the work she did to interest our young girls in science and technology. My thoughts and prayers are with her family."
