Women Who Rock Science

Adele Acheson and Linzie Venegas co-chaired the Cranbrook Institute of Science's second annual Women Rock Science fundraiser. Richard DeVore of PNC, Joi Harris of DTE Energy and Angela English from Detroit Public Schools were all honored for having a positive impact on the next generation of students through STEAM-oriented initiatives. Over $100,000 in proceeds will help bring more science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics programming, delivered by the Cranbrook Institute of Science, to PreK -12th grade students in underserved communities throughout metro Detroit.
