While the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flew overhead, several of the Navy’s flag officers and enlisted personnel stopped by RIT to visit with middle school girls in the WE@RIT World in Motion camp to talk about how STEM programs can be preparation for naval careers. Featured at the camp event was Rear Admiral Gretchen Herbert, assistant chief of naval operations, who shared some of her experiences as she first looked into the Navy as a career choice while attending West Irondequoit High School. Since being commissioned in 1984, Admiral Herbert has served as a combat systems officer and assistant chief of staff for communications and information systems and has been deployed in the Mediterranean and Arabian Gulf with several carrier strike groups.
