“I’m incredibly honored to be receiving the Calvin G. Butler Legacy Award today,” she said at the Historically Black College and University Engineering Deans Recognition Event held at the 38th annual BEYA STEM Conference. “I’m an immigrant who speaks multiple languages, so the word legacy, which is of Latin origin, shares a similar root with delegate, which means to assign a task. When I think of legacy, I think of people who have entrusted me with their tasks, taught me, invested in me, supported me, and most importantly, believed in me. As as I reflect on my journey from the moment I landed at the airport at LAX through the halls of Morgan State University to my professional career at Pepco, I’m grateful to all those who came before me and are paving the path ahead.”
