The Tama-Toledo Area Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) would like to inform the Tama County Community that we will no longer be celebrating our annual High School Young Woman of the Year program.
We are very proud of all the Tama County high school senior girls who have excelled in their local schools and communities that we have honored over the past 30 plus years. It has been very rewarding to share this experience with the girls and their families.
This year we have decided to change our focus to middle school girls in the South Tama Community and girls in middle school at the Meskawki Settlement School. We have done this in the past for girls excelling in math and science, but will now expand this to also include social studies and literacy.
These will be girls nominated by their teachers who will select girls who have inquisitive minds, show curiosity, use problem solving, show a willingness to help others and demonstrate understanding of the subject.
A dessert buffet and program will be held on May 5 at the Reinig Center in Toledo.
