The fourth annual Phenomenal Women of USI and the Community recognition ceremony will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 24, in Carter Hall in the University Center at the University of Southern Indiana.

The program, sponsored by the USI Multicultural Center, the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and Old National Bank, honors and celebrates women from all walks of life who have made contributions to diversity at the University and in the community. Through the annual recognition of these contributions, the Phenomenal Women program hopes to inspire others to embrace and promote diversity within their own lives.

Nominations are accepted in five categories: USI undergraduate and graduate student; USI administrative and support staff; USI faculty; and community-at-large. Eight honorees are chosen.

This year’s community honorees are Dr. Nancy Kovanic, a diversity management educator; Lu Porter, assistant vice president for community development at Integra Bank; and the Rev. Ruby Schroeder, an educator and pastor in the United Church of Christ.

University honorees are Cassie Bowman, USI undergraduate student; Heidi Gregori-Gahan, USI administrative staff; Dr. Marie Bussing-Burks, USI faculty; Dr. Leigh Anne Howard, USI faculty; Lois Stevens, USI support staff.

Student nominees must possess at least a 2.25 cumulative GPA; be currently enrolled as a USI student; serve as a role model for other USI students; and be a champion for diversity. Community-at-large and USI employee nominees must show a demonstrated, profound impact on the lives of others in our community; serve as a role model for others in our community; and be a champion for diversity.

A light buffet will be served from 6 to 6:30 p.m. and the recognition program will take place from 6:30 to 7 p.m. For more information, contact Pamela F. Hopson, director of the USI Multicultural Center, at 812/465-7188.
