Michiana Women Making History: Dorisanne Nielsen
For Women’s History Month, 88.1 WVPE and Indiana University South Bend’s Women and Gender Studies program has been recognizing Michiana Women Making History.
Dr. Barbara Williams, a South Bend physician and sociologist, conducted several interviews with notable women in the community.
We bring you one last conversation, this time with Dorisanne Nielsen, a resident of Elkhart for the last 53 years. Dorisanne has served the Elkhart community as a teacher and on many boards and task forces, including the WVPE Advisory Board. She talks about her experience as a woman elected to the school board and the rewards of teaching.
