She also attended Swarthmore College as an undergrad before transferring to Stanford… Sally Ride married NASA astronaut Steven Hawley in 1982. They were divorced in 1987 and had no children… R&B singer Wilson Pickett’s hit tune “Mustang Sally” includes the chorus, “All you want to do is ride around Sally / Ride Sally ride.” The connection is coincidental; Pickett recorded the tune in the 1966, after Ride was born but long before she became famous… Sally Ride was an inaugural member of the U.S. Mint’s Women on American Quarters program; she began appearing on the quarter in 2022.
