Religious Studies Professors Partner with Girls4Good

by Jane Terry

On Saturday, 3 March, two of our Religious Studies professors, Micki Pulleyking and Ken Elkins, spoke at the Girls4Good Conference, “Women and Girls: Then and There, Here and Now,” held at Central High School.  Dr. Pulleyking’s session was titled “Women in Religion,” and Mr. Elkins talked about “Women in the Holocaust.”

The conference, organized and produced by Central High School students and supported by the Bezos Scholars Program and Ozarks Public Broadcasting, featured, among others, Dr. Nancy D. O’Reilly as the keynote speaker and Senator Roseann Bentley on “Women in Politics.”  According to their website,, “Girls4Good is a high school grassroots movement that seeks to level the playing field. Through discussion, community involvement, and global projects, we are searching for solutions to our worlds greatest inequality.”
