7/21/08: AAUW-Illinois Honors WITASWAN!

WITASWAN08On July 21, 2008, Linda Henning Cohen, the new President of AAUW-Illinois, sent me a letter concluding as follows:

"The AAUW-Illinois Board thanks you for your years of developing and promoting WITASWAN and wishes to acknowledge your outstanding accomplishments with the enclosed proclamation."


You will always be credited as the original incubator of WITASWAN. I never could have achieved any of this without active support from AAUW-Illinois Board & Branch members all across the state.  My six years of service on the AAUW-Illinois Board (in the roles of Director of Leadership Development, Director of College/University Relations, & Director of International Relations) have been the source of friendships that are sure to last a lifetime 🙂


The acronym WITASWAN (wit-uh-swan) stands for Women in the Audience Supporting Women Artists Now.
