Performing Troupe Honors Women's History Month

What do Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Eleanor Roosevelt have in common? They are both "Women of Courage and Vision" which is this year's theme chosen for National Women's History Month. Their stories will be told by the Women in History Troupe as part of the Women's History Month observance at NASA Glenn Research Center.

Glenn will host the program on Wednesday, March 21, at 9:30 a.m., in the Administration Building Auditorium.

One of the vignettes featured will be of Ida B. Wells Barnett, an African-American educator, newspaperwoman, anti-lynching campaigner and founder of the NAACP. Eleanor Roosevelt, the first activist First Lady and wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt will be the other.

Additionally, the annual Federal Women's Program Awards will be presented during the program. This award, in its ninth year, recognizes men and women civil servants' contributions to the advancement of women at Glenn and their participation in community service organizations. Two employees are recognized each year, one at the supervisory level and one at the non-supervisory level.

Media representatives interested in attending this commemorative program for Glenn employees are requested to call Jim Giomini at 216/433-8340 or the Media Relations Office 216/433-2901 for security clearance.
