On Wednesday, April 25 a luncheon was hosted in honor of the five Saint Louis University women selected as Women of the Year. These women represented a cross-section of the administrative, faculty, staff and students. The luncheon has been a traditional springtime event since 1977 and was co-sponsored by the Women’s Commission and the Office of Diversity and Affirmative Action.
Below is a posting on Darina Sargeant and her nomination as a 2012 Woman of the Year:
