Keynote Speaker
Rebecca Price, President and CEO of Chick History
“At the heart of Chick History is the belief that every great story has not been told, and more importantly, what we’ve been told isn’t the whole picture. Women’s history is all around us, we just have to dig it out and put it back in place, one story at a time.” Rebecca Price
Award of Scholarships
Recipients of 2017-2018 Ruth Houston Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship and Butler-Fouts Memorial Graduate Scholarship
“The Ruth Houston Memorial Scholarship has provided some financial relief for my family so I can work less. It is motivating to see how AAUW lifts others up in their community, and it inspires me to do something great after I graduate.” Bethany Jackson, former recipient

Founded in 1913, AAUW Murfreesboro has been leveling the playing field for women and girls to work and learn since then. Over the last 50 years, the branch has offered a scholarship every year to an undergraduate woman at MTSU through the Ruth M. Houston Memorial Scholarship. This year, AAUW Murfreesboro is launching a second scholarship, the Butler-Fouts Memorial Graduate Scholarship for an under-represented woman pursuing a graduate degree at MTSU. Each scholarship provides $2000 for the academic year.

We hope to see you on April 11.
