Women of Wonder

To my sisters and fellow Super Heroes,

I would like to extend an invitation to you to join with me in a very important mission with a "secret" society…the Women of Wonder League℠ (WOW). The purpose of WOW is to rescue at-risk high school students by creating an opportunity for them to attend Atlantic Cape Community College and transform their lives.

There are no membership dues and we only meet once a year. This year, we will have our convocation at a secret location from 4-7 PM on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. I only ask that you consider making a commitment of your time and/or a donation to the Women of Wonder Tuition Assistance Fund.

The origins of this Cape May County-based league of super heroes began several years ago when I adopted Wonder Woman as my personality of courage to address a highly uncertain and scary time. I wanted to use the concept as an inspiration for others so I created the Women of Wonder Tuition Assistance Fund. As a result of the Fund, Cape Educational COMPACT at-risk students with academic promise attend courses at Atlantic Cape…many have not only done an outstanding job in those college courses, they have gone on to enroll post high school graduation. Our WOW scholars are creating a better world for themselves and our community!

Today, we have a mission. There are many more youth in our county who are being told they are already failures because they do not easily meet the expectations of mere mortals. Many of them wind up at Cape Educational COMPACT - angry, frustrated, and scared. I know that there is super-hero potential in each and every one of these Compactians. Many of us work hard to create opportunity for their super-heroic alter egos to shine through.

But we can't do this work alone. We need your help as a volunteer and your financial support. Please consider taking on this mission and responding positively to this invitation. Please think about allowing your alter ego to shine through and to let me know who you really are and how your extraordinary Cape-abilities can assist the WOW mission!

I hope you will choose to support this mission and become a member of the Women of Wonder League. If you have any questions about the WOW league, please call me at 609-463-4507 or email me at pgentile@atlantic.edu. Thank you for your consideration.

Yours in WOW,
Patricia A. Gentile, Ed.D.
