Sherryl Broverman, President of WISER International and leader of the DukeEngage in Kenya – WISER program, will receive the 2016 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award from Duke. The DukeEngage community would like to congratulate her for this prestigious award, which recognizes one graduating senior and one member of faculty, staff, or the graduate student body for their dedication to service.
Broverman co-founded Women in Secondary Education and Research (WISER) in 2006, and currently serves as the President of the organization. As DukeEngage in Kenya program leader, Broverman guides participants through partnership with the NGO, improving health and educational conditions for young women in Kenya. She has long served as an inspiration to students who wish to help empower Kenyan youth, and is well-deserving of the award for this reason.
A public ceremony for this year’s award will be held on May 4th at 11:00am in the Allen Board Room. We are extremely proud of Broverman’s accomplishment, and we hope that she will continue encouraging others to engage in meaningful service.
