A Community Project to honour women who have enriched our lives

The Ban Righ Centre supports mature women who are starting or returning to education at Queen’s University. In taking this significant step, these women found role models, advocates and inspiration in other women. Then, as they engage in their studies and in their activities beyond Queen’s with friends, family, peers and colleagues, these students effect continual and positive change, extending the reach of their mentors and the Ban Righ Centre. Through “Who Is She?” we honour women who make a difference.

Honoured by: Ginny Trousdale

I have chosen to honour my Aunt, Andrea Jones. She is the matriarch of my family and someone who has been a loving constant in my life. She has an engaging generous spirit and gives herself fully to life and its interests. Our conversations literally fly, covering anything and everything. With her I am reminded to not sweat the small stuff. When I can only see the trees, I hear her sage wisdom; like hearing the forest in her voice. At a recent family reunion, she longed for more time to spend with each of us, because in her words, “You are all mine.”
