Dr. Charlotte Borst, Rhodes College Provost, is among 25 of Memphis’ most influential women selected to have photographs displayed in the “SnapShots: Memphis Women at Work” exhibit at the Art Museum of The University of Memphis. Other guest photographers include Dr. Shirley Raines, University of Memphis president; Frances Hooks, activist and philanthropist; Ruby Wharton, managing partner of The Wharton Firm; and Jan Young, executive director of the Assisi Foundation.

Each photographer has chosen her own subject pertaining to a “woman at work” and written brief statements about each choice. Borst has chosen Jane Walters ’56 who is principal of the Grizzlies Academy and a former Tennessee commissioner of education.

There will be a reception at the museum, free and open to the public, on November 10 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. No RSVP necessary. Cocktail attire is suggested.

The exhibit is presented by The Center for Research on Women at The University of Memphis in celebration of its silver anniversary. Over the past 25 years, the center has sponsored many projects related to women and employment.
