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: Janet Holmes

Elizabeth Holmes (1940-2005) was a lifelong learner. She returned to school in her late 30s (graduating 1st in her class from an LPN program) and again in her early 60s. Her daughters admired her determination to challenge herself in new fields and have followed in her footsteps.
