Clute had these words to say about Ride:

“Most remember Sally Ride as a pioneering astronaut and as a plasma physicist of distinction. I remember her as a “shero” to thousands of young girls across the country who NOW believe they can achieve in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Her passion crossed paths with mine numerous times when she came to UC Riverside and we reached out to 1500 plus middle school girls, empowering them with confidence and stimulating their passion for learning science and mathematics.”
