Check out our Summer 2017 activities while we don’t have regular meetings – but we have FUN together…
Annual UWF/AAUW PT Scholarship Meeting May 13 to honor our 2017/18 scholarship recipients and get updates on University Women’s Foundation.
From Michael Kubec UWF:
“We listened to the stories of a remarkable group of young women who were in equal parts inspiring, impressive, accomplished, and grateful. While the amount we were able to give away in scholarships, $54,800, was the highest ever, even more moving was the frequent comment by the recipients regarding the support of AAUW PT members. They value tremendously the fact that behind the dollar amount is an educated, talented group of women who are rooting for them and who care. That theme was also heard from the many family members in attendance to support the scholars. Every member of AAUW PT can take pride in the accomplishments of this group. As one of our awardees said to me, “You are all awesome!”
Women in Charge has been our theme for the 2016/17 meetings. Our upcoming year begins in September 2017, so check this website again for the schedule.
