MESSAGE From the Past PRESIDENT :
In May, some of our WHC members hosted a study break for the AAUW-Rice University Student Chapter during their final exams week. I am so impressed by these young women’s energy, enthusiasm, sense of humor (even in the midst of finals!), and desire to give back to their community. It’s my hope that our branch will continue to strengthen our relationship with the Rice Student Chapter in the coming years, and perhaps encourage the establishment of AAUW student chapters at other local universities as well. I’ve thought it might be good to add a “Student Chapter Liaison” position as an appointed committee chair in our branch, and I welcome your thoughts on the topic.
It has been my pleasure to serve as your President this year! To be completely honest, the dedication and enthusiasm of our branch officers and committee chairs made my job really easy. Thank you to all of you who work to make our branch so wonderful. I leave WHC in the extremely capable hands of in-coming president, Sharon Jorgeson, and look forward to seeing what good things our branch accomplishes in the new year!
Anne Amador, WHC Branch President
…Thanks for a GREAT year Anne!
