Dress for Success held its 3rd Annual Kansas Women of Distinction publication party Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Abode Venue in downtown Wichita. Each year the event, hosted by Dress for Success Wichita, highlights women across the state of Kansas who make a difference in their communities.
This year, Newman University nominated Charlotte Rohrbach, ASC in honor of the 50th anniversary of the profession of her vows as an Adorer of the Blood of Christ, and her more than 31-year career at Newman University. During her tenure at Newman, she has served as a history professor, alumni director, campus ministry director, academic dean, study abroad director, service learning director, and even once as interim president and chief operating officer. Because of her dedication to help others as well as her service to the church, Sister Charlotte was awarded the Pro Ecclesea Et Pontiface from Pope John Paul II.
Newman President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D.; Vicki Bergkamp, ASC; Tarcisia Roths, ASC; Tracy McGarey, administrative assistant to the president; Audrey Curtis Hane, Ph.D., dean of adult and continuing studies; Molly Fox, development director; and Kelly Snedden, director of communications, congratulated Sister Charlotte as representatives of Newman at the event. All of the special women recognized in the Kansas Women of Distinction party are featured in a special publication released for the first time at the event.
Dress for Success promotes economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools women need to thrive in work and life.
