Saturday April 25, 2015 was cool and drizzly, but the overflow attendance at our spring luncheon was warm and festive. National AAUW Board member Millie Hoffler-Fouchee presented roses to incoming Branch officers: Everlena Diggs, Membership; Cherrie Wheaton, President; Libby Haile, President Elect; and Linda Jensen, Program Chair. Stephanie Gotbi-Teheri, Treasurer could not attend.
Dr. Kimberly Hewitt, on behalf of the Branch and the College/University Partner Committee, presented scholarships to Shaylon Duncan and Jessica Twitchell who will attend NCCWSL in Maryland in May. We look forward to their report back!
Dr. Rosalind Fuse-Hall gave an inspirational speech and called us to action on behalf of college and university women in our area and beyond. She presented a compelling case for women to follow the mission of AAUW in education, research and service.
Speaker: Bennett College President Dr. Rosalind Fuse-Hall
