Women's Equality Day - Annette Baldwin to be our presenter for our annual Equality Day event. Her program, The Long Road to Victory, is a portrait of five brilliant, dedicated leaders in the woman suffrage movement: LUCRETIA MOTT, Quaker minister, gifted and inspiring orator, and one of America’s most respected social reformers; ELIZABETH CADY STANTON, brilliant leader of the 19th century woman’s rights movement, who spoke and wrote on every “radical” reform of the day; SUSAN B. ANTHONY, the most recognized and beloved leader in the fight for women’s equality; ALICE PAUL, militant suffragist of the early 20th century, celebrated for her parades, picketing, and imprisonment for the Cause; CARRIE CHAPMAN CATT, Anthony’s successor as president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, masterful strategist, and founder of the League of Woman Voters.

Dear Lake County Women's Coalition,

My final class at the College of Lake County wrapped up at the end of July and last week I received my Associate in Arts degree.

As a 2013-14 recipient of the Lake County Women’s Coalition Scholarship, I hope to share this update with its members. Along the way, the daily duties weighing upon me and fellow mature students can make our educational goals seem out of reach. These scholarships mean more than dollars — they offer encouragement that helps us push forward when we want to stop. Please send my thanks to the membership, again, for doing that for me.

I am now two weeks into Southern Illinois University’s Workplace Education and Development program and looking forward to receiving my Bachelor of Science!

Have a wonderful day.

Tracy Castro
