Fort Hays State University honors Phenomenal Woman Award winners

04/06/15
Twelve women on the Fort Hays State University campus were honored last week at the second annual Phenomenal Woman Award ceremony.
Notifications are sent out campus-wide for staff and faculty to nominate women staff, faculty and students who meet the following criteria: breaking gender stereotypes, taking action, leading by example and outstanding contributions.
A committee reviews the nominations and selects the winners.
The award, for which there were 43 nominations this year, was established last year as a counterpart to the Men of Merit program. This year's selections for Men of Merit, in its fourth year, will be announced later this month.
This year's recipients are:
• Dr. Hendretta Ali, assistant professor of geosciences.
• Dr. Jennifer Bonds-Raacke, chair of the Department of Psychology.
• Pam Driskill, cashier, Starbuck's, Memorial Union.
• Amber Frazier, Peyton, Colo., senior.
• Brenna Johnson, Beloit senior.
• Dr. Katherine Kelley, assistant professor of communication studies.
• Nyasha Maforo, Caldwell senior.
• Dr. Keegan Nichols, assistant vice president for Student Affairs.
• Jackie Ruder, manager of new development, Computing and Telecommunications Center.
• Stephanie Stauffer, Vilonia, Ark., graduate student.
• Sharon Wilson, instructor of English.
• Holly Weiss, Anthony graduate student.

* Corrects on the selection process and includes two recipients omitted from the original version.
