In The News: GU's Mary Pat Treuthart a YWCA Woman of Achievement
Gonzaga's Mary Pat Treuthart was recently honored with a YWCA Women of Achievement award for her work in education.
Spokesman reporter Nina Culver featured Treuthart's passion for social justice and path to GU in the March 16 edition of the Spokane daily paper.
“One of the reasons I came to Gonzaga was its social justice work,” she said in an interview with the paper. “It really resonated with me.”
"She enjoys the mix of teaching and clinical work that she has at Gonzaga, but she hasn’t stopped here," Culver writes. "She’s been involved with Disability Rights Washington, which provides legal services to people with disabilities, since 1990. She’s on the board of directors of the University Legal Assistance Program and co-founded a domestic violence mini-clinic. She’s also been involved in other organizations, including the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane, the YWCA and Habitat for Humanity."
