Dr. Pendleton is also a retired disabled assistant professor of Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) and a disabled distinguished retired NASA research scientist who was a hidden figure, because she was a African American woman who was discriminated against because of her disability.  Dr. Pendleton graduated head of her class, but did not receive any scholarship offers. She waited five years before beginning her college education at Prairie View A&M University in 1972, where she ultimately received her B.S. in Pre-Med and mechanical engineering, graduating Cum Laude in 1979. She earned her Master’s of Science in Materials Science in 1983–the same year that she suffered a debilitating stroke following a tumor-removal surgery. Dr. Pendleton had to re-learn how to crawl, walk, and talk.  During this time, however, Dr. Pendleton says “God called me to preach the gospel. He sent me into the harvest” and in 1984 she earned a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Divinity degree in theology from Mt. Zion Bible Institute in Houston, Texas.

In 2008, she completed her doctoral studies and received her Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering. During her time as a NASA research scientist, Dr. Pendleton recalls her struggles against discrimination, particularly regarding her disability. “As a disabled research scientist, I was discriminated against due to my disability. I was denied accommodations based on [Americans with Disabilities Act] laws,” she said.  “I want to do the will of God to serve as a mentor to young people that they can be anything they want to if they just believe and put God first and then in themselves. This has made me a spokesperson for disabled employees.”  Dr. Pendleton has been married for 43 years to the love of her life, Bishop Dr. Walter Pendleton with whom she has three children.
