Sower’s Seed Lecture Series
In 2005, over ten years ago, the Sower’s Seed Lecture was established by Kelly Snider Dunn ’64 and her family to showcase the work of Trinity Washington University alumni who have contributed to the greater good of the world.
The Sower’s Seed speakers all in their own unique ways have confronted issues of injustice and drawn on the values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur to guide and inspire them to plant these seeds of social change. All have shared their stories with students sitting in the classrooms where they themselves once sat. The seeds are sown one more time.
This year, Corinne Cannon, ‘99 ‘03 founder and CEO of the DC Diaper Bank will give the Sower’s Seed lecture on Thursday, October 20 at 10:30 am in Social Hall. Corinne is an exceptional leader in the community, a driving force behind a major effort to support the needs of low income women with children. She founded the DC Diaper Bank in response to a serious need that no one was addressing, namely, getting a sufficient diaper supply to mothers who could not afford to buy them for their babies. Corinne’s work has garnered national attention including designation as a “CNN Hero.” Below are several links to stories about her.
We welcome Trinity Faculty, Staff and Students to the Sower’s Seed lecture! This is a great opportunity for our students to hear from a young alumna who has founded and built a great public interest business serving a community need while gaining national recognition, a great role model for students who aspire to do similar things in their careers.
