NPC Hosts Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®
National Park College (NPC) Cultural Diversity Awareness Club (CDAC) and Student Life
hosted Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in celebration of International Women’s Day last week.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® takes place on college and university campuses around the country through the months of March and April annually. The march is a playful way to increase awareness for serious women’s issues, including sexualized violence against women. The march featured male faculty, staff and students from a variety of areas on campus wearing red high-heeled shoes.

Darla Thurber, special assistant to the president and chief diversity officer said, “The event is twofold in that it brings awareness to serious women’s issues such as sexualized violence, as well as promotes the achievements of the many women who have paved the way for our female students, faculty, and staff members.”
Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce Woman of the Year nominees gave a brief word of encouragement to attendees. Pictured left to right, Mary Kay Wurm, Angela Echols, Tamra Barrett, and Katherine Polczynski.
