“Shoot for the stars!” CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA Sylvia Acevedo took that mantra to heart. Her memoir, Path to the Stars, is a powerful reflection on the foundational experiences that led her to a career as a rocket scientist, award-winning entrepreneur, and former commissioner on the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence for Hispanics. Madeleine Brand of KCRW’s Press Play joins her for a conversation.
