American Association of University Women of New York State (AAUW)
Emerging Leader Award, 2009
The Dunkirk-Fredonia Branch is proud to nominate Brenda Hayes for the Emerging Leader Award. As a new member of AAUW, she spearheaded our Advocacy Project. Brenda organized and chaired a committee of AAUW members who worked with the staff of the Dunkirk Boys and Girls Club to design a program that targeted middle schools girls and the barriers they face that hinder their academic success. The culminating activity was a field trip to Jamestown Community College. This successful program really highlighted Brenda’s leadership qualities.
