From the Jackson Citizen Patriot:
Patricia Jennings is committed to the mission of the American Association of University Women. It was the organization's mission to ``promote equity for women and girls through education, research, advocacy and philanthropy'' that interested Jennings 43 years ago.
Jennings is a life member of the association, and this is her third year as the group's state communications director. In that role, she helps increase the visibility of the organization as well as attract new members.
She has been involved with the association's annual book sale and assisted in the development of an informational DVD.
For Jennings, part of moving the association forward means being involved with several events, including Equal Pay Day at the state Capitol and women's suffrage events at the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame.
