Women’s History Month at Panhandle State

During March, Panhandle State looks forward to celebrating Women’s History Month with students, faculty, staff, and community members.

In 1981, Congress authorized and requested the first week of March 1982 be recognized as Women’s History Week. During the next five years, members working on the National Women’s History Project petitioned to have it designated for the month’s entirety. March 1st-31st, 1987 was the first year to be observed as Women’s History Month in the United States. March now celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture, and society.

Panhandle State has scheduled several events throughout the month for women on campus and the community. At the start of the month, alumni and guest speaker, Becky Lauridsen, will join campus virtually to talk about burnout prevention and stress management. Historical women will be showcased across campus, and current leaders were featured to recognize the trailblazers, both past and present, during the month.

Women’s History Month has grown awareness over the decades among both men and women. Panhandle State will embrace this with students by hosting events throughout the month for both the men and women on campus. Each week will have an event that students can join together and encourage each other to be their best selves.

Panhandle State encourages everyone to celebrate the success of women in our country and support the next generation during Women’s History Month.
