Carol Wickersham of Beloit College has been selected as one of this year’s nine honorees at the 37th Annual Zonta Tribute to Women Awards Dinner. Taking place Tuesday, April 29 at the Country Club of Beloit, the event recognizes and celebrates the achievements of women in the community who go above and beyond in areas including volunteerism, education and community service.
“I'm delighted to have been so honored twice, in 2014 and 2005,” said Wickersham, who is the director of Community-Based Learning, the coordinator of the Duffy Community Partnerships, and an adjunct sociology instructor at Beloit.
Wickersham was selected in part due to her roles as a pastor, professor, advisor and activist. An outspoken defender of human rights, she is also a founding member of No2Torture and the National Religious Campaign Against Torture.
The Zonta Tribute is not Wickersham’s first honor of 2014. She also won the Family Services Social Justice Award earlier this year.
“All of these honors really belong to the community partners, colleagues and students with whom I am privileged to work. They teach me something new every day about what makes a good society,” she said.
The Zonta Tribute is sponsored by the Zonta Club of the Beloit Area, a group of executives in business and the professions who work to provide service to the community while advancing the status of women.
