What We’ve Missed While On Vacation!
Although we took the summer off, many events continued to happen! Let’s catch up. Not only will our ear-to-the-ground president present a synopsis of all things AAUW (it’s been a busy summer!) but we’ll get to share what has been going on with us! So come ready to meet, greet and learn.

Elaine Luria, the Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District will join us at 8:00 pm. (Note: Scott Taylor, the Republican candidate for this position was contacted but scheduling conflicts prevented his attendance).
*November 14, 2018 (date change)
Access College…Adria Phillips, Program Specialist for the Access College Foundation, will be our presenter on November 14, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. The Access College Foundation was founded in 1988 to eliminate barriers to postsecondary education and increase college attainment for underrepresented and low-income students. Since then, the Foundation has helped more than 60,000 students from South Hampton Roads go to college, while leveraging $625 million in financial aid and scholarships. Clearly, the Access College Foundation has changed lives as well as communities.
Adria will share the Foundation’s story with us and provide information about the successful approaches the organization uses to foster student success. She will focus, also, on financial aid and scholarship tips. Please bring your questions to this important and informative session. Please think about possible ways in which our AAUW Branch might collaborate with the Access College Foundation.
