Update: Here’s the website set up by Margaret’s family: http://www.forevermissed.com/margaret-ashida/
Over the weekend, Margaret Ashida, Executive Director of STEMx, passed away. The education community has lost a leading advocate. Her work includes an impressive list of leadership positions in organizations across the country, and credentials from elite universities. Her industry expertise and commitment to excellent STEM education opportunities for all students will be sorely missed.
As anyone who had the pleasure of working alongside Margaret knows, she was a tireless advocate for equity and access, and a persistent, diligent team member. Our team, along with countless others, will miss her knowledge and skill—but what we will miss most is her kindness and cheerful smile.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.
Vice President of Education, STEM Learning and Philanthropy
