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.

When I was widowed with 2 small children, it was my step-mother, Myra, who was there–always with sage advice and ready to lend a hand. It doesn’t end with family; she continually is helping others in her community. Whether it is driving someone to a medical appointment, or giving food to someone in need (oh those pies and tarts!), Myra is always there.
