Thirty-five members and guests of the La Palma-Cerritos American Association of University Women gathered at the La Palma home of Carol and Robert Marsh on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, for a gourmet brunch to support AAUW Funds for Fellowships.

The Funds Brunch raised over $1,000 thanks to the work of the AAUW’s Funds Vice-Presidents Dorothy Edwards and Thea Siegel.

Dorothy and Thea co-chaired the event and even provided delicious dishes for the brunch with the help of some of the AAUW’s gourmet chefs, Marilyn Forsstrom, Carol Marsh and Gail Ross.

Everyone enjoyed the quiches, chili rellenos, lox, bagels, coleslaw, fruit salad, mimosas, and a variety of tempting desserts that were provided.

Dorothy Edwards introduced the guest speaker, Aisha Najera Chesler, who is an AAUW American Fellowship recipient.

Aisha is working for her Ph.D. in applied mathematics at Claremont Graduate University and will receive her degree in December of this year.

Aisha is working on developing a mathematical model that can identify fetal distress more precisely. She said that her goal is to prevent unnecessary Caesarean sections.

AAUW members thanked Aisha for coming and sharing information about her very timely research and wished her continued success in her studies.

Members of the La Palma-Cerritos AAUW were pleased to meet someone who actually received a graduate fellowship from the AAUW. The funds raised from this Funds Brunch will be awarded to women graduates who will be recipients of fellowships in the future.

The La Palma-Cerritos AAUW members are preparing a display at Cerritos College for Women’s History Month in March which will be available to the public after March 3, 2014.

The next General Meeting of the La Palma-Cerritos AAUW will be held on Thursday, March 20, 2014, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., in the Skyline Room of the Cerritos Library, 18025 Bloomfield Ave. in Cerritos.

For more information about the program for the evening, call Program Vice-Presidents Barbara Dunstan at 562-404-4760 or Christine Taxier at 714-828-7711.
