    A poetic challenge to Christian faith women, to sustain and encourage each other


    {{Jeremiah 10:19 says, "Woe is me for my hurt! My wound is grievous: but I said, Truly, this is a grief, and I must bear it."}}

    W.O.E. Women of Excellence


    We are the Women of Excellence, born with a heavenly charge
    We are wells of hope and encouragement, to the lost, the hurt and unloved
    We were wounded, but enlightened now, for our wounds have set us free
    We seek wisdom in its essence, and liberation from all tyranny

    Our hearts are sympathetic to cause so long obscured
    Our ways unapologetic, for we fight with our hands and our swords
    Only God will lead us, only God shall know our fate
    Our destiny is before us, as we pledge this stand to take

    Every weapon formed against us, every fiery dart they hurl
    Every word of discouragement aimed at us when we were just little girls
    Each lie and misconception, though they wounded us to the core
    Evokes our will to be acknowledged, saying, "We won`t take this anymore!"

    WOMEN OF EXCELLENCE are then women, by their strength and by their right
    Who have suffered some hurt and pain through a long and lonely night
    Women who`ve been challenged and now proudly accept the wailing call
    Women on a God-led mission to change this world for us all.

    "Woe unto the man who backs a WOE against the wall!!"

    Black Woman Physicist Tops List of Highest Paid College Presidents



    According to last week’s Chronicle of Higher Education, Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson was the highest paid president of a private U.S. college or university during the 2007-2008 school year (the most recent year for which statistics are available). During that year, Jackson’s total compensation for her duties as president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) amounted to $1,598,247.

    Jackson’s compensation is a reflection of her unprecendented success as a fundraiser and visionary for the institution. Next month, RPI will hold a weekend-long celebration to mark Dr. Jackson’s first 10 years as president, a period that the Institute refers to as the “Decade of Transformation.” A recent report in the Albany Times Union describes the success that has mark this decade as well as the planned festivities:

    Aretha Franklin will perform at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in December as part of a weekend celebration called a “Decade of Transformation” that celebrates President Jackson’s 10 years on the job and the culmination of the $1.4 billion capital campaign she led.
    And Franklin, who performed at Obama’s inauguration in January, is just the Friday- night entertainment. On Saturday, Joshua Bell, one of the world’s most acclaimed violinists, will wow the revelers with his 1713 Stradivarius. Both shows will be held at the $200 million Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center and will only be open to members of the RPI community, including students, staff and alumni, RPI spokeswoman Theresa Bourgeois said Monday.
    “One of the premier voices of the world is going to sing at one of the premier venues in the world,” said Bourgeois, who is Jackson’s personal spokeswoman. “It will be spectacular, as is the transformation at Rensselaer, so it’s very appropriate they’re coming.”

    Biographical Notes: Shirley Ann Jackson holds a B.S. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) and a Ph.D. in theoretical elementary particle physics, also from M.I.T. Her research interest is in “theoretical condensed matter physics, especially layered systems, and the physics of opto-electronic materials” (source: RPI.com).
    Prior to her appointment as RPI president, Dr. Jackson was, “Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission; a theoretical physicist conducting basic research at the former AT&T Bell Laboratories; and a professor of theoretical physics at Rutgers University” (source: RPI.com).
