Barbara Thompson, an Unsung Shero

On April 12, Barbara Thompson, Director of Student Records, was presented with an Unsung Shero Award at the 2011 Women of Color Transformation Tea.

The Women of Color Transformation Tea began in 1997 and is an open forum for the diverse spectrum of women of color and friends on UofL campuses.  The Tea affords women an opportunity to empower one another by sharing concerns, problems and positive suggestions.

Ms. Thompson was nominated by Kathy Bean, Robin Harris and Laura Rothstein. To be eligible, the nominee must be a woman of color who is presently a university employee and who has made a significant impact in the lives of women either in the Metro Louisville community or on the University campus.
