Herrett Forum Featuring Wendy Jaquet
Women have played roles in Idaho’s development going clear back to when it achieved statehood. The inspiring stories about those women are motivating and sometimes surprising. Former Idaho lawmaker Wendy Jaquet of Ketchum will talk about them at the next Herrett Forum at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17.
Several factors have led to an increase in the number of women in elected positions, she says. Jaquet will talk about those and what women can do to be better represented today. Jaquet’s own biography includes 18 years in the Idaho legislature, the last four of which were on the Joint Finance Appropriations Committee, past Administrator for the City of Ketchum, co-manager for Ketchum’s Wagon Days celebration, and an art gallery owner. She was recently appointed to serve as a member of the board for the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
The Herrett Forum is a monthly series of presentations held the third Wednesday evening of each month during the school year. Topics are coordinated by the Herrett Forum Committee, a group of community individuals dedicated to bringing high quality presentations to Twin Falls. No tickets are required for this free public lecture. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is located on the north side of the College of Southern Idaho campus at the North College Road entrance.
