Free Public Program: The Women Pioneers of Reston

Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7pm
Location: Jo Ann Rose Gallery at RCC Lake Anne
Among those Bob Simon assembled to assist in Reston’s creation were some very accomplished women, including the architect Chloethiel Woodard Smith, and Carol Lubin, Jane Wilhelm and Priscilla Ames who made important contributions in areas of education and community development. This program will explore their impact as well as that of women residents who played important roles in Reston’s early development. We also will provide a brief overview of women who have been key players in Reston’s development over the last 50 years and remain key today. There will be a slide presentation followed by a panel discussion.
