Sheridan named Outstanding Woman Leader

by Kalamalama staff

Dr. Mary Sheridan, professor of social work in the College of Liberal Arts at Hawai‘i Pacific University, was named Outstanding Woman Leader of the Year in the private sector category by the Organization of Women Leaders.

“Mary was selected for her contribution to the organization, excellence in her field, and service to the community. She has served as the organization’s corresponding secretary for the last several years and will continue in this role next year,” said Pearl Imada Iboshi, president of the organization. “She is a nationally recognized expert in her field and a superior teacher as evidenced by the award she received this year from HPU for teaching excellence.”

 
 

Dr. Sheridan has taught at HPU since 1978, and was instrumental in the establishment of a Bachelor of Social Work degree program at HPU. In addition to receiving the HPU Award for Teaching Excellence earlier this year, Dr. Sheridan was also named Social Worker of the Year in Professional Education and Training for 2003 by the National Association of Social Work, Hawai‘i Chapter.

The Organization of Women Leaders is a group of women executives from a spectrum of Hawai‘i’s businesses and government agencies. Established in 1984, the organization’s mission is to develop a network of contact among women in decision-making positions in the private and public sectors to promote greater job effectiveness and professional advancement.
