I have had a wonderful experience on AAUW's Student Advisory Committee this year. I have grown educationally, emotionally, and as a leader. This has been the best experience of my life. I have been apart of a wonderfully supporting and encouraging group of women.

My Aunt Eula personifies AAUW for me. I wear her engagement ring from the fiance who died in World War I. She went on to achieve Phi Beta Kappa and teach school in Milwaukee, WI. She married late and I remember she always referred to her husband as “Dear Albert”. Aunt Eula valued her member ship in the Milwaukee Chapter of the American Association of University Women so highly that I joined AAUW soon after my own graduation in 1948 and am a dual member in two California Chapters today.
