The Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women will have a special celebration of its namesake this week as part of its Seventh Annual Legacy Event.

Eberly, one of the center’s original advisory board members, would have celebrated her 90th birthday this year.

Photographs and documents chronicling her life recently were discovered in the center and will be featured in a display to honor her life and help present the lasting impression she has had on the University and Toledo community.

“I find personal joy and satisfaction in knowing that we are giving back important history to the UT community as well as the Eberly family,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, UT associate vice president of equity, diversity and community engagement. “We know where we have been and, through our mission, we know where we are going. The Office of Equity, Diversity and Community Engagement team has stepped up to the challenge of not only rejuvenating and promoting our programs and initiatives, but also has done a superb job recapturing our history.”

In addition to celebrating Eberly, the Legacy Event will serve to recognize this year’s scholarship award recipients along with the center’s donors and supporters.

The free, public event will take place Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Libbey Hall. Light refreshments will be served.
