Emilie Crimmins, an intern, just graduated from St. Edward’s University. Emilie has been a great help to WSP, from planning our Amplify Austin event to guiding other interns. Although she has graduated, she plans to continue volunteering with WSP when she returns from her final studies in France.
Andy Wolff, CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley producer, gave Judith a tour of the studio. As she met some of the people who worked on the WSP piece – they smiled when Women’s Storybook Project was mentioned. They loved our program, and one of them said she wished there was a program like that in New York.
Kim Weidmann and Linda Cox from Westlake Methodist Church conducted a “Rethink Church” opportunity for people to learn about WSP and to experience our program. Members from Westlake Methodist Church volunteers and students packed books, and assembled shelves at the office. Several volunteers recorded a book and burned a CD to take home. This was truly a “hands-on” experience.
What an honor to be acknowledged at Ten Thousand Villages of Austin‘s Eighth Annual International Women’s Day Awards Ceremony! Sun Connor, our wonderful Office Administrator, nominated me. Since I was unable to attend the ceremony, she accepted the beautiful award, Humanitarian Runner Up, in my place. Thank you, Sun, and all our wonderful volunteers that make Women’s Storybook Project such a special program.
Thank you Ryn Cunningham and fiancé, Guy Hohmann for encouraging your wedding guests to give to WSP in lieu of gifts as you celebrate the beginning of your new life together. Ryn (a WSP volunteer) and Guy’s wedding will take place on April 16th. You can celebrate their big day too, by giving to WSP.
