4. To initiate, endorse, and support desirable legislation or other suitable endeavors in the interests of education and of women educators

  • To endow scholarships to aid outstanding women educators in pursuing graduate study and to grant fellowships to women educators from other countries.

Bells produce a joyful sound. They announce change, focus our attention, are part of our legacy as educators and are technologically up to date. When rung with heart, they connect people and develop relationships. They may work together or independently. They reflect diversity.
