Mothers, Mentors and Muses Fourth Annual Scholarship Fundraiser ReceptionPosted Feb. 11, 2013
On Tuesday, March 12, the Women’s Center at Kent State University will host the fourth annual Mothers, Mentors and Muses Scholarship Fundraiser reception. The event will take place at the Kent Student Center Ballroom from 5-7 p.m.
The event honors women nominated as any of three roles: a mother – someone who has helped “birth” new ideas and thoughts in others and has also served as an overall nurturing individual, a mentor – an individual who has been both a role model and a trusted counselor to others, or a muse – an individual who has inspired both creativity and academic enthusiasm in others.
This year, Jennifer Kulics, student ombuds and president of the Women’s Center Board, will speak at the event.
The Women’s Center, which was established in 1996, has been focused on advancing women in their academic careers. Funds raised at the event will fund $500 scholarship awards for two Kent State University female students. This scholarship has benefitted 16 students since its introduction in 2003.
Registration to attend the event deadline is Feb. 28. To register and for more information, visit www.kent.edu/womenscenter.
