Future Navy Submariner is Already a Rockstar in Her Own Right
Much will be said and written about the women who will soon join the Navy's submarine force. Some of these women will let their actions do all the talking. One of these action oriented young women is Ensign Peggy S. LeGrand. She doesn't need a male protector, special attention, waivers or favors to succeed. This young woman is a nuclear rockstar in her own right. A June 2010 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, she has been working tirelessly on a number of activities. She's made the time to continue her semi-professional career as a world class cyclist. She's also an incredibly talented academic. She completed her Master's Thesis (ELECTROCHEMICAL STUDIES OF PASSIVE FILM FORMATION AND CORROSION OF FRICTION STIR PROCESSED NICKEL ALUMINUM BRONZE) for an M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering in June 2011 at the Naval Postgraduate School - Monterey, California. This young woman has "over-achiever" written all over her. You know what favor she really needs from the Nay Sayers? She needs for them to get the hell out of the way. She has work to do. Try to keep up. It won't be easy. She's already started the breakaway and you just woke up from your nap.
