The President’s Corner
The second annual AAUW/Zonta Lunafest was a great success. Over 260 attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and wine/beer in the beautiful Esri atrium followed by touching, funny, and thought provoking films. The evening’s proceeds will provide scholarships for women in our community to further their education.
On Thursday, May 8 we have another opportunity to support education. The Adult Literacy interest group is hosting a theatre fundraiser and I hope to see you there.

May Branch Meeting: “Women in Community Colleges: Access to Success”
Dr. Cheryl Marshall, appointed President of Crafton Hills College in December 2012, has long been an advocate of student success and collaborative decision-making. She will be speaking on the report “Women in Community Colleges: Access to Success” which discusses policies and practices to help women succeed in community colleges. For example, child care is a vital resource for student mothers working to complete their educational goals. Women also need more support for pursuing opportunities in STEM fields. Dr. Marshall, who has been an educator for more than 20 years, will provide observations she’s made on this throughout her career.
