On Friday, November 10, 2023, the UNC Greensboro Women Veterans Historical Project (WVHP) hosted its annual luncheon, which featured keynote speaker Ingrid Ruffin, U.S. Air Force veteran and UNCG alumna. Ingrid spoke about her experiences in the military and how she has applied the lessons learned in the Air Force to her education and career. Ingrid is currently an Associate Professor and Associate Dean/Division Director for Research and Education at the University of Nevada Las Vegas Libraries.
In addition to the luncheon and the speaker, guests admired the exhibit of materials from the WVHP collections designed by Tori Hinshaw (read her piece about the exhibit HERE.)
Almost 100 women veterans, UNCG faculty and staff, alumni, friends and family attended. You can see photos of the exhibit and luncheon guests at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/uncgspecial/albums/72177720312768669.
