Equity for Women Award presented to Housing Resident Advisor

Amanda McKnight

Amanda McKnight, a junior psychology major, won the 2013 NC State University Equity for Women Award, presented by the Council on the Status of Women.

The award recognizes service (voluntary or job related) toward the goal of women's equity. NC State employees, students, and former employees are eligible to receive the award and nominations are solicited from all members of the campus community.

University Housing is proud to recognize McKnight, a mentor in the Women of Welch Village (WOW). This Living and Learning Village was created to enhance women's experience outside the classroom through a focus on empowerment, leadership development, self-awareness, and diversity/social justice. The WOW Village fosters a holistic community embracing individual women's growth and development while challenging residents to act as citizens of a global community.

Congratulations to Amanda McKnight on her achievement!
