Cynthia Nance Honored for Public Service

Local 965 member Cynthia Nance, Dean of the University of Arkansas School of Law, is among four women to be honored at the 9th Washington County Women's History Month Dinner/Celebration on March 28 at the Fayetteville Clarion. The banquet is hosted by Altrusa, American Association of University Women, Business and Professional Women, Delta Kappa Gamma, Democratic Women of Washington County, League of Women Voters, National Organization of Women and Republican Women of Washington County.

The annual event recognizes women who have made a substantial contribution to their communities through service and who have made contributions in areas historically closed to women. Sister Cindy Nance has worked for equal opportunity in a variety of ways. She's been head of the American Association of Law Schools Employment Discrimination Section and is on the board of the National Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice. Locally, she works with the Cooperative Emergency Outreach ministry supported by several churches, Habitat for Humanity and the Northwest Arkansas Worker's Center. At the university, she's sponsored the Labor and Employment Law Society, the Black Student Law Association, and Phi Delta Phi legal honor society, and she represented AFSCME Local 965 as a delegate at the recent AFL-CIO convention in Chicago

Tickets are $ 17 and will be available only through Friday, March 23. More information is available at 751-6258.
