Biographical or Historical Information
The Associated Women Students (AWS) was an organization created to provide a way for the female students to socialize, help promote the school activities, and provide a medium for women to express themselves and maintain the social standards. First mention of the organization was in the 1937 Acorn. From approximately 1937-1962, the AWS president was on the Associated Studentsâ Board of Control. The presidency was elected yearly, with the council being made up of members from the different clubs, organizations, and classes. In 1937, the council was called the Girlâs Council but was called the Womenâs Council thereafter. The organization was discontinued in the 1980s.
