El Camino College Seeks Nominations for 2018 Distinguished Women’s Wall of Fame
The El Camino College Women’s History Month Committee is seeking candidates for the 2018 Distinguished Women’s Wall of Fame.
The Women of Distinction Award recognizes outstanding women from the El Camino College area, selected by the committee each year during March, which is designated Women’s History Month.
Award nominations may be made by friends, family, and colleagues; individuals may also nominate themselves. Nominees will be judged for their contributions to women’s and girls’ causes and community service that aligns with this year’s National Women’s History Month theme, “NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”
Those nominated must live or work in the communities within the El Camino Community College District: El Segundo, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Inglewood, Lawndale, Lennox, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Torrance.
The nomination deadline is Feb. 23. The leaders will be honored at the Women’s History Month Luncheon set for March 22. Honorees will also be featured on the El Camino College Distinguished Women’s Wall of Fame throughout the year, and their names will be engraved on a plaque that remains on the wall permanently.
To nominate a candidate or to see a list of previous honorees, view: http://www.elcamino.edu/events/whm.aspx or call 310-660-3868.
