11 Highline pioneering women spotlighted at Burien Community Center

City of Burien press release:

The Burien Community Center is pleased to present a new exhibit curated by Highline Historical Society intern Colleen Lenahan.

The exhibit “Extraordinary Women of Highline" is an exhibit that showcases the accomplishments of eleven pioneering women from the Highline area.

These women impacted their communities in profound ways, giving back in the form of civic involvement, political progress, education, and the written word.

There have been many incredible women who have contributed to developing the Highline region since pioneer days, and though we cannot celebrate them all in this exhibit, those honored here represent the broad spectrum of achievement of all female Highline leaders.

Colleen is working on her M.A. in Museology at the University of Washington.

The exhibit can be found in the lobby at the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Ave. S.W. It will be on display until January 31, 2013. Burien Community Center hours are Monday-Thursday 8:30am-8:00pm and Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm.
