Raye Montague - Women's History Observance
Raye Montague - the Navy's 'hidden figure' - works at her Naval Ship Engineering Center office in this undated photograph. Montague was the keynote speaker at a National Women's History Month Observance held at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren in April 2017. I thought about all of things that happened to me in my career " all the doors that I had opened and glass ceilings that I broke, she recounted at the observance. I didn™t realize that I was breaking glass ceilings back then. I was just doing what had to be done." Montague was the first person to design a U.S. Navy ship and served as the Program Manager of Ships (PMS-309) for the Naval Sea Systems Command Information Systems Improvement Program.
