Chocolate bread pudding with a banana caramel sauce served as the celebratory cake last night as students and administrators gathered at the Charles Hotel to celebrate the Harvard College Women's Leadership Awards.
Sameera Fazili '00, president of the Harvard Islamic Society, received the Women's Leadership Award, a prize sponsored by the Ann Radcliffe Trust.
Elizabeth D. Chao '00, former chair of Women in Science at Harvard and Radcliffe (WISHR), and Kamil E. Redmond '00, former Undergraduate Council vice president, received honorable mentions.
Carole Simpson, senior correspondent for ABC News, was honored with the Women's Professional Achievement Award.
Karen E. Avery '87, director of the Trust and assistant dean of Harvard College, said the selection committee received over 75 nominations from the undergraduate community for the third annual leadership prize.
"This award has captured the imagination of the community in a way I never imagined when we first started," said Harry R. Lewis '68, dean of the College. "I want to express the pride the College has for the level of excellence these women have achieved."
Avery praised the women for their energy and dedication to campus causes.
"Sameera, your achievements here are just the tip of the iceberg in what accomplishments are to come," Avery said when presenting Fazili with her award. "And you're just so darn nice."
