MASON CITY – In honor of Women’s History Month, a panel discussion will be held at North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) on Monday, March 24 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Activity Center, Room 101.
Former NIACC Board President Joyce Hanes, who was the first female board president at NIACC, will be speaking. Two international students, Sharon Chamwoma from Kenya and Priscillar John from Papua New Guinea and non-traditional student Anna Ranson of Mason City and Naomi Reiff of Osage, a practicing Mennonite, will comprise the panel.
According to Cindy Eyberg, NIACC’s International Student Liaison, “The Global Diversity Committee is proud and excited to present this opportunity to learn from these remarkable women.” Each will share information about their background and life experiences as well as answering questions.
This is NIACC’s second panel discussion in what the Global Diversity Committee hopes will continue as an annual event in recognition of Women’s History Month. This event is free of charge.
