Everyone at the event could not help but be moved when President Jackie read the heartfelt nomination form, that was submitted by Audrey's former colleague, and also by Audrey's touching remarks following her win. She certainly reflects Elizabeth Peabody's commitment to education and the values of Wheelock College. Congratulations again, Audrey!
