Women’s History Month Reception at UF

Since March of 1981, Americans everywhere have helped pay tribute to women whose commitment to humanity and to our planet have proved to be invaluable for society.

We are honored and privileged to celebrate these women with our community. On March 14, 2018 the University of Florida hosted the Annual Women’s History Month Reception, which included two awards by the Gainesville Commission on the Status of Women. The awards are the Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Ida B. Wells Awards.  Below are photos of various members of our Board and the award winners at the Reception.

The awards are designed to recognize women’s contribution for women’s and/or civil rights which best exemplify the values and accomplishments of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Ida B. Wells.

Our winners this year were Ileana McCray and Donna Weller.

FCSW Awards Luncheon

On Thursday September 23rd, 2016 several of our Board members attended the Florida Commission on the Status of Women (FCSW) Florida Achievement Awards held here in Gainesville. Two of the people being honored are from Alachua County. Sherry Nungesser Houston and Susan Webster. It was a very affirming and interesting time, the keynote speaker was the University of Florida First Lady Linda Fuchs.

The Florida Achievement Awards are given by the Commission to recognize meritorious women who have improved the lives of women of Florida and/or who have served as positive role models for women and girls in their community. You can see more information on the history of the award here.

“The Florida Commission on the Status of Women recognizes and supports women of all ages as they strive to achieve their fullest potential,” said Patti Hamilton, Commission Chair. “We are proud to honor outstanding women for their tremendous achievements and dedicated service.”
