More thank you notes have been received from the Sister to Sister Summit held in March, 2013, so this article originally posted on March 18 has been updated.
Dear Sandy and Steve,
Again I would like to give a warm thank you to the Vestry for the generous contribution to the Sister to Sister Summit sponsored by AAUW (the American Association of University Women). Almost 120 middle-school girls from Lowndes and Brooks attended the March 9th Summit, which was held in University Center. During the day, they participated in a wide variety of sessions designed to provide a safe space to discuss issues related to self-esteem. In addition, they were able to talk to women who had been successful in their careers and they were given an introduction to the campus. It was a wonderful day, and Christ Church was mentioned again and again. Those involved from the church included Martha Leake (presenter), Diane Halim (Program Coordinator), Emily Rogers (Volunteer), and Hanae Kanno (Presenter), as well as myself (badges and registration). I hope you will share this email with the Vestry.
The Rev. Deacon Patricia Marks
