The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Weatherford Branch will honor two women who are making a difference in the community at this year’s spring luncheon that is planned March 14 on the Weatherford campus.

Honorees are Kelli Litsch, assistant athletic director and compliance officer at SWOSU, and Darla Davenport, assistant director of human resources at SWOSU. The luncheon theme this year is directed to understanding Title IX and how it affects the lives of everyone. 

The two will be honored at 12 noon in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom. Tickets are $10 and available by contacting Dr. Robbie McCarty at 580.774.3265 or by email at robbie.mccarty@swosu.edu. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.

Faye Henson, president of the AAUW chapter, said the luncheon is scheduled during Women’s History Month each year and has always honored women in the community who are making a difference. 

Both Litsch and Davenport work in areas of the SWOSU campus where they impact the lives of women and men every day. They will share with attendees why Title IX is important to them and how it continues today to affect the lives of women/girls and men/boys.

Title IX affects access to higher education, athletics, career education, education for pregnancy and parenting students, employment, the learning environment, math and science opportunities, sexual harassment, standardized testing, and technology.  

Henson said the luncheon setting will be informal.  The boxed lunch will be a triple-decker club sandwich, pasta salad, apple or other fruit, chocolate chip cookies, and water. Vegetarian plates are also available if requested when buying a ticket.

If you need a vegetarian option please inform us at the time of ticket purchase.  For more information, contact McCarty or Henson, 580.72-5984 or epita@cebridge.net.
