to honor Ann Dibble Jordan with 2004 American Woman Award

celebrate Ann Dibble Jordan, who represents America's proud-and
largely female-tradition of social and community service. For
many years, a professor of social work at the University of Chicago,
she now applies the wisdom and practical experience gained in
her professional career to benefit hospitals, universities, symphonies,
art galleries, and charities, many of them here in Washington,
the Magnificent Seven!

Reed of Rhode Island and Congress-women Jan Schakowsky (Illinois)

and praise “their” Fellow. Over
100 guests gathered in the LBJ Room of the U.S. Capitol to hear
from the seven Fellows and their sponsors, including WREI Board
member and CWA Secretary/Treasurer Barbara Easterling and WREI
Advisory Council member Mayada Logue of Altria.
