Adrienne Ephrem, integration manager with the 711th Human Performance Wing, represents the third generation of female engineers in her family. It was her grandmother, Phyllis Bolds, who started this family dynasty of scientists and mathematicians, working as a physicist in the radar branch of the electronics laboratory here at Wright-Patterson from 1955-1957, and then later in 1957, transferring to their flight dynamics laboratory, working there until her retirement in 1987.
