    The Julia Beveridge Award Ceremony

    MTCC Ballroom
    Thursday, March 10, 2011
    3 - 5 pm


    The Julia Beveridge Award is named for an extraordinary woman who served as the librarian of Armour Mission and as the first registrar of Armour Institute. Widely recognized for her contributions to the Armour Mission and for her strong leadership, Mrs. Beveridge worked with neighborhood children, instilling in them a love of books. She also began a manual training program in which her students learned practical skills, such as woodcarving, tile making, sketching, mechanical drawing, and design. Mrs. Beveridge's devotion to students and her lifelong commitment to nurturing the talent of young women and men secured her reputation as a consummate educator.

    Starting in 1991, the annual presentation of this award is intended to recognize the importance of such commitment to IIT and the community and to evoke the memory of all that Julia Beveridge exemplified as a teacher, administrator, and woman. Each year, the award is given to IIT-affiliated women who serve as faculty, staff, trustees, alumnae, and friends of the university.
