Certificates of Recognition

Certs of recognitionContra Costa NOW has recently begun working with the Women’s Empowerment (WE) club at Diablo Valley College (DVC). As part of that collaboration we are excited to announce that we have awarded Certificates of Recognition to eight members of WE for their outstanding contribution in the areas of education, activism, empowerment efforts, leadership and personal growth.

Recipients must be a rostered member of WE DVC during the current semester. They must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 in order to qualify and show proof of 40 hours minimum club participation or activist work. These awards are open to all genders and sexes.

NOW member Karen Brockwell presented the certificates to the recipients at the December 9th WE meeting at DVC. The recipients were Addison Flannery, Jenna Forslin, Scarlett Arreola-Reyes, Lauren Wardle, Emma Phillips, Nikole Rodriguez, Andrea Corrigan, Sabrina Larez.

We want to thank these young women for their hard work and commitment to bettering themselves and the world around them. They represent the hope of a more egalitarian future. And we wish them well in their further educational and activist efforts.
