2019 AAUW Colorado Springs Branch Names Honored Recipients

The Names Honored award is an opportunity for the organization to recognize outstanding Branch members.  We have many active members who bring their time and talent to fulfilling the AAUW mission and for that we extend a big thank you.  Your continuing commitment makes our organization successful and rewarding.  As in the past with so many wonderful, accomplished women in our organization, we couldn’t narrow our selection down to just one, so again this year we’re honoring 2 outstanding women – Paula Munger and Nedra Engelson.
