The University Advocates for Women and Equity is excited to announce the 2016 award recipients. A spring reception will be held Thursday, April 7, from 3:30-5 p.m. in McNeely Hall Great Room (MCH 100) to celebrate the award winners. The event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Buffy Smith (Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice), Beth Murphy (Donor Relations) and Ciara Parks (undergraduate majoring in justice and peace studies) are the recipients of the Good Sister Award, which honors those who show readiness to help and support, in formal and informal ways, the women on campus.
Dr. Susan Alexander (Office of the President) is the recipient of the Pauline Lambert Advocacy Award, which honors those who take initiative in challenging problems that exist around gender issues.
Jazzmine Jackson (undergraduate majoring in English) and Martha McKinley (undergraduate majoring in justice and peace studies) are the recipients of the Sister Pat Kowalski Memorial Women's Leadership Award, which recognize those whose clarity of vision, courage of convictions and generosity of spirit encourage others to see that working on behalf of the women at St. Thomas may be a source of joy and life.
Please join UAWE and the St. Thomas community in celebrating these women.
