Welcome to the AAUW Long Beach Branch!

America’s First Ladies

Wednesday, March 9, 2017–A Dinner Meeting

 The March 9, 2017 Branch dinner meeting features Dr. Virginia “Ginny” Baxter, one of Long Beach’s foremost community leaders, who was honored in 2011 as the Press-Telegram “Amazing Woman in Education”. She will share her insights and presentation on First Ladies in American History.  Adding to her many accolades, in 2014 Ginny was elected as a Trustee on the Long Beach Community College District Board and last year, was elected President of the Board. Ginny is now retired from her position as the Executive Director of the Long Beach City College Foundation, a position she held for 32 years. Her many years raising funds for Long Beach City College gave her special insights into their needs and how LBCC supports students.

Ginny earned her B.A. in History from Occidental College, and her M.A. in History from Occidental. In 1988 she received her Ed.D. in Educational Management from the University of LaVerne. Her dissertation was on “Role of Leadership in the Development of Successful Community College Foundations”. She went on to distinguish herself as a community college foundation leader who raised millions for the college.

She has been a 30+ year member of AAUW and plays a big part by helping our branch make location arrangements for the annual AAUW STEM conference held at LBCC.

Her accomplishments have brought her distinguished honors from community organizations including the California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ), New Hope Grief Support, and Long Beach Soroptimist “Woman of the Year (2004). Ginny has served as a leader of many organizations in Long Beach, but she may be best known as the person who has led many educational tours to Washington, D.C., South America, Europe and Cuba for more than 32 years!

This meeting also honors the Past Presidents of AAUW-Long Beach Branch making this an exceptional meeting that focuses on accomplished women and not one
to miss!
