LWVUS chooses Scarlett Gaddy and Charlotte Ward for Education Study Committee

Scarlett Gaddy, Tuscaloosa Leaguer and Second Vice-President of the LWVAL, has been selected to be on the newly formed LWVUS Education Study Committee. A new study on the federal role in education was adopted at June's 2010 National Convention. Attendees heard Scarlett speak eloquently and effectively about adoption of the study at the mike in Atlanta.  

Scarlett is one of several LWVAL leaders chosen in the past year to work at the national level of the League. Last year as part of the national Membership Recruitment Initiative, Mary McGinnis, president of the LWV of Mobile, and Debra Butler, vice president of the LWV of Mobile, were selected as development coaches for the state of Alabama. They are assisting local Leagues with recruitment and leadership development. Joyce Lanning of Birmingham is the LWVAL representative on the Joint Legislative Committee on Energy and is a member of the national Climate Control Task Force.

Congratulations, Scarlett! Alabama continues to be well represented on LWVUS committees and in national League projects.

UPDATE! 9/16/10
Charlotte Ward of Auburn and LWVAL Co-President has also been selected to serve on the LWVUS Education Study Committee. They will both be working on the Common Core and Assessments section of the study. Congratulations again to both Scarlett and Charlotte!
