The University of Southern Indiana will host a special 50th anniversary celebration of its annual Phenomenal Women program at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 19, in Carter Hall in University Center West.
The event is open to the public and will include a program, dinner and reception.
Phenomenal Women, held during Women's History Month at USI, honors and celebrates women from all walks of life who have made contributions to diversity in the USI and Evansville communities. Through the annual recognition of these contributions, the Phenomenal Women program hopes to inspire others to embrace and promote diversity within their own lives.
This year, USI's 50th Anniversary year, the University is recognizing 50 Phenomenal Women who have helped shape our campus and the community. USI President Linda L. M. Bennett, one of the 50 honorees, will be the speaker for the event.
Honorees were selected based on several criteria including:
