UWAA Changes Release Date of Recorded Women’s Leadership Recognition Celebration

September 1, 2020

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association (UWAA) has rescheduled the release of its recorded women’s leadership recognition event to Thursday, Sept. 3. The release date previously was scheduled Saturday, Sept. 5.

The UWAA will recognize the women of its board of directors and those who have been employed by the association as part of the ongoing celebration surrounding the 150th anniversary of Wyoming women’s suffrage.

The UWAA originally planned to host a ceremony at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center in Laramie Sept. 5. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the UWAA decided to transition from an in-person event to a virtual celebration.

The recognition event, which features a panel of four UW alumnae, can be viewed on the UWAA website at www.uwyo.edu/alumni or on the UWAA YouTube channel.

UWAA board member Joslyn McGriff (B.S. ’05) will moderate the panel. The panelists will speak about their career pathways; their keys to success; and any obstacles they faced and how they overcame them.

The panelists are:

-- Gaurdia Banister, executive director of the Institute for Patient Care at Massachusetts General Hospital and director of the Yvonne L. Munn Center for Nursing Research.

-- Mary Ellbogen Garland, president and chair of the John P. Ellbogen Foundation.

-- Mary Johnson, vice president of special projects for YoungWilliams, a government health and human services company.

-- Rita Meyer, infrastructure investments director for Rocky Mountain Power in Wyoming.

The recorded event also will recognize former UWAA Executive Director Robbie Darnall, who served the association for 34 years.

Full biographies for each panelist can be found at www.uwyo.edu/alumni.

“The UWAA is proud to recognize the women who have served and continue to serve the association,” says UWAA Executive Director Keener Fry. “They have dedicated their time, leadership and knowledge to the association while continually upholding the UWAA’s vision and mission of engagement with alumni and promoting UW.” 

Event sponsors are Black Hills Energy, First Interstate Bank and UniWyo Federal Credit Union.

For more information about the event, call the UWAA at (307) 766-4166 or email uwalumni@uwyo.edu.
