Last night, The New School’s Office of Student Development & Activities held their 10th Annual Student
Leadership Awards, honoring individuals and groups at The New School who demonstrate a commitment to community leadership. We knew ahead of the event that our advisor Lori Lynn Turner received a nomination for Outstanding Advisor to a Student Organization, but we were surprised to learn that FWO had also received two nominations, one for Outstanding New Student Organization and one for Outstanding Student Organization or Group.
We are proud to announce that Lori Lynn won for Outstanding Advisor to a Student Organization! She was presented with a beautiful framed award, just as fabulous as the one you see here. Lori Lynn has worked tirelessly to support the FWO since its inception, and was instrumental in encouraging and facilitating our most successful and ambitious event of the year, our Women Writing in the Age of ‘Post-feminism’ panel back in March. We are thrilled to see Lori Lynn’s hard work and dedication as an advisor, feminist, and an all-around inspiring person recognized.
