Housley Receives Volunteer Award

Associate Professor Helen Housley, Theatre and Dance, was recognized as an outstanding volunteer by the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital on April 25, 2015. Housley was presented with the Honor Pin for her work in organizing, under the sponsorship of the Department of Theatre and Dance, a series of Theatre Arts Week-ends for Girl Scouts. Since 2002, over 100o Girl Scouts (ages 11-18) and their leaders have visited the UMW campus, participating in theatre-related workshops led by theatre students, and enjoying a UMW Theatre production. Several of these Scouts have subsequently enrolled at and graduated from UMW.
