Sparked by their interest in entrepreneurship and their commitment to Iowa State University, Joanne and Charles (Chuck) Kuster of Johnston, Iowa, have endowed a new Legacy of Heroines scholarship through the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics.
Iowa State’s Leadership Studies Program, which is coordinated by the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics, has undergone several changes, continued growth and university recognition in recent months.
A number of departments and academic programs at Iowa State have purchased pavers to honor members of their faculty and staff or outstanding women in their field. In this issue of Voices, we feature three women honored on a paver purchased by the African-American Studies Program. These women were chosen because, according to members of the program, they “shaped the political, cultural, and social life of the U.S.; we hope that their lives and legacies will be an inspiration to all.”
