Student & Community Impact

Community Involvement


The Woman's Educational Society is a strong supporter of the arts. In 2018, WES was a sponsor of the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival.


WES member Sarah Healy was honored with a sculpture in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College's Tactile Gallery. Sculptor Sean O'Meallie created the Drive-In Tasty Freeze chocolate-dipped cone out of sandstone to pay homage to Healy's sweet treat during her treatment for multiple myeloma, an aggressive form of blood cancer.
