AAUW to celebrate 10 years of outstanding women at reception March 15 in the Runnymede

March 9, 2012

The local branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), a group comprised of Northwestern Oklahoma State University and community women, will mark its 10th anniversary by recognizing outstanding women during a reception at the Runnymede on March 15 from 6:30-8 p.m.

The evening's events will include special music by Dr. Sarah Chan, professor of piano. She has conducted concerts throughout America and Europe. She was most recently selected as "Rising Artist" by New York Concert Artists and Associates in 2010 and 2012. Some of her national and international concert engagements have included Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in New York, Sala Ateneu in Romania, La Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, Meany Hall for the Performing Arts in Seattle, and she participated in the Awards Winner's Tour of Washington State and Battelle Northwest Young Artists Series.

Chan will serve as adjudicator for the American Prize competition for 2012. She engages a passion to see a new generation of artists, scholars and innovators arise out of the communities and institutions where she teaches.

There will be an introduction of all past Women of Recognition Winners and an opportunity for them to share a brief memory or story regarding their award. The evening festivities will include refreshments for the award winners, their friends and family.
