Lyn Mikel Brown Fellowship
At our Board/Staff planning session in October, we expressed immense gratitude for a few departing board members: Lyn Mikel Brown, Tobi Scheider, Mary Lou Michael and Pam Cobb. To honor co-founder Lyn Mikel Brown‘s stepping off the board, we created the Lyn Mikel Brown Fellowship in partnership with Colby College. Lyn’s decades-long dedication, research and commitment to girls’ healthy development is the foundation of Hardy Girls. The fellowship was created with Colby, where Lyn has taught in the Education Department for many years, to carry on her legacy by engaging Colby students in the crucial work of standing with girls. Our first Lyn Mikel Brown Fellows started in October and already they are giving so much! Lyn will continue to be involved with Hardy Girls.
