DALLAS — Three nursing students from the Texas Woman’s University Dallas Student Government Association recently attended the 2010 National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.

Nursing juniors Jaleesa Johnson of Nacogdoches, Misty McNabb of Lewisville and Theresa Harvey of Jersey City, N.J. represented TWU at the conference. More than 450 college students from across the country attended the event, which was held June 3-5 at the University of Maryland, College Park.

“We make these types of opportunities available to students because we want them to be able to grow and to give back to their peers, their community and their field of study,” said Ms. Chrè Parnell, TWU student life coordinator for Dallas.

Since 1985, the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders has provided a platform to help thousands of college and university women develop leadership skills, network with other student leaders and interact with women who hold leadership positions. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) and NASPA —Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education — host the annual conference.

Women students who attend the conference have the opportunity to gain real-world lessons during a fast-paced, two-and-a-half-day experience focused on enhancing student leadership. For more information, visit
