Sabashnee Govender, 2019 Recipient

 

At the June 13th meeting fun pictures were taken, AAUW members and friends chatted and met new people, elections were held, officers installed and members honored.  That was all before the program started with the recipients of the Irene Keyes Scholarship speaking about their trip to the NCCWSL conference.  The final part of the evening was a talk by Sabrina Marzouka, "Improving the Lives of Women and Children."  We were told to "open our briefcase of talent and change the world."  Sabrina closed with a quote she has on her office door by Angela Davis "I am no longer accepting the thing I cannot change. I am changing the things I can not accept."  It was a wonderful evening, enjoyed by all.
