Title

Patricia Shaw: Memphis Hypertension Research Convention Honoree

Subject

Women in the Workplace, Honoree

Description

Patricia Shaw was honored at a Memphis Hypertension Research Center Convention. The theme of the convention was listed as “Black Women- The Foundation of Black Society.” Within the pamphlet, a small paragraph includes Shaw’s accomplishments. The foundation recognizes her as “the first woman to serve on the Board of Commissioners for the Memphis Light, Gas, and Water Division.” Shaw was also commended for position at Universal Life Insurance Company as Vice President- Associate Controller. We chose this pamphlet because Patricia Shaw was recognized for her hard work, as a woman and as an African American. She worked hard throughout school and her various jobs and was honored for doing so.
