Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership’s Parade on Friday

November 3, 1998

The Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership (VWIL) will hold a parade in honor of visiting high school students on Friday, November 6, at 3:00 p.m. at the track on Mary Baldwin University’s campus. The public is encouraged to attend free of charge.

The military parade is part of an “overnight weekend” in which 17 prospective students – young women interested in enrolling – will be visiting Mary Baldwin, spending time with VWIL students and attending classes to get a picture of VWIL life at Mary Baldwin.

A drum ceremony, color guard, pass and review, marching band and military formations will be featured in the half-hour parade.

VWIL, now in its fourth year, is a comprehensive program for Mary Baldwin students who are interested in intensive leadership training. The program includes academic requirements in mathematics, sciences, statistics, computer science, foreign language, leadership studies and outdoor education programs focusing on the development of confidence and teamwork.
