Reaching for Your Dreams is the theme of the 2015 Women of the World (WOW) awards luncheon. Please join us on Saturday, March 14, to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of outstanding Calvert County women and girls. This event will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the College of Southern Maryland’s Prince Frederick Campus – 115 J.W. Williams Road, Prince Frederick, MD 20678.
The WOW luncheon sold out last year, so be sure to reserve early!
WOW is co-chaired by our Commission for Women and the League of Women Voters. At this always-inspiring event, Calvert County women’s and nonprofit organizations honor their best – not only the League and Commission, but also the Boys and Girls Clubs, Community Mediation Center, Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation, Concerned Black Women, Chamber of Commerce, and more. Of course, men and boys are very welcome to join in this celebration.
Our featured speaker will be Dia Brown – a tenth grader at Huntingtown High School and senior division winner of the Commission for Women’s 2014 Harriet Elizabeth Brown History Fair Award. She will present a dramatization of Calvert County’s own civil rights hero:
Brown v. Calvert County Board of Education:
Harriet Elizabeth Brown & Thurgood Marshal Collaborate to Enforce Rights & Honor Responsibilities
In addition, we will recognize Nina St. Hillaire and Danielle Frye – ninth graders at Plum Point Middle School – for their award-winning junior division display: The Rights & Responsibilities of Harriet Elizabeth Brown: The Heroine in Our Back Yard.
