Six ‘Phenomenal Women’ garner special award

Award honors "unsung" heroines on UND campus

UND hosted its eighth annual Phenomenal Women Awards Luncheon and Program Wednesday, May 8, in the Memorial Union Ballroom.

The Phenomenal Women Award was presented to six individuals – two in each of three categories: faculty, staff, and student – as follows:

Roxanne Hurley – College of Nursing
Jo-Anne Yearwood – University Children’s Center

Beverly Blegen – Social Work
Twyla Baker-Demaray – Rural Health

Margaret Burke – Psychology major
Amy Stroh – Political Science and History Major

The event was sponsored by the Women's Center, Multicultural Student Services, and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. The award recognizes women within the campus community who are unsung heroes – those women who every day make our community a better place to live, work, play, and thrive.
