AWIS-WV receives generous donation to support outreach

The WV Chapter of AWIS has received a generous donation from Jan Westerik to honor his wife, Judith Westerik, who was an officer in our WV AWIS Chapter for many years. We thank Jan for remembering the work that Judith did as our treasurer. Judith will be sadly missed, but her memory lives on as scholarship funds for middle school girls to attend outreach activities geared toward STEM career fields.
