Women’s Hall of Fame

Jessica Frank

JESSICA FRANK has received a wide variety of written comments from teachers, including the following: “You bring intelligence, passion and creativity to everything”… “Your Rodin paper is worth publication”… “I appreciate how much you push yourself… how you try something you have never done or follow a line of though as far as it will take you.” Jessica is a recipient of the National Council of teachers of English Writing Award. She has volunteered as a teacher’s aide with emotionally disturbed 3rd and 4th graders, tutored a runaway youth who speaks English as a second language, and is a member of MORE, Moving on Racial Equality. As a social Action Contact for Pacific Central District’s Young Religious Unitarian Universalists, she is responsible for creating projects combining community service and social justice for this 400-member youth organization spanning northern California. So far, her group has helped renovate an elementary school in a low-income are in San Francisco, organized and conducted a workshop on homelessness, planned an Amnesty International letter-writing campaign dealing with Youth Against Violence, and marched in the NOW “Fight the Right” rally in San Francisco. She spent last summer on the Navajo reservation, learning from the people and tutoring at the adult education center.
