Members of GEWN enjoyed the June 12 annual meeting:
A Star in Her Hands
GEWN women aren’t satisfied just to reach for the stars; they expect to grab one. In 2001, when President Elect Karen Sullivan (Losin) was in charge of awards, she met with master craftsman Don Lillie of Lillie Glassblowers in Smyrna to discuss a design for a perennial award, the Founders Award. Lillie Glassblowers was the first professional lamp working company in Georgia.
There had been no standard design for the GEWN sculpture. Lillie, who spent 30 years as Georgia Tech's master glassblower after earning his degree in physics there, came up with the dynamic figure of a woman with a star firmly within her grasp.
