President’s Message

Kathleen Doty, Branch President

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” Louisa May Alcott

For me, I look up and see the hope of education and equity for women and girls around the world. AAUW’s strategic plan gives members a way to follow where this hope will lead. This month at our annual meeting, not only will we elect our leadership for the coming year, we will also look at the three strategic goals set by AAUW National in a local light. For all of us seeking education and equity for women and girls, it will be worthwhile to look at where we are and what we may do to reach these lofty aspirations. Please come to the annual meeting and see the beauty of AAUW efforts and pledge to follow where they lead.
