Luncheon planned

WATERVILLE — Leading Women’s Luncheon is set for 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, June 2, at O’Brien’s Event Center (Best Western Plus).

Theo Kalikow will be featured as the luncheon speaker.

Kalikow grew up in Swampscott, Mass. She graduated from Wellesley College with a bachelor of arts degree in chemistry, and holds master’s and doctoral degrees in philosophy and history of science from MIT and Boston University. She taught for many years at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, serving there as professor of philosophy, department chairwoman, and assistant to the president. She also led the faculty union. Her later career as a college and university administrator took her to Colorado, New Hampshire and Maine. Her retirement from the University of Maine at Farmington, where she spent 18 years as president, lasted a few days in June 2012, when she was tapped for a two-year stint as president of the University of Southern Maine. Kalikow is spending this year as interim vice chancellor for the University of Maine System, and might even retire in June, according to the release.

Registration for the event cost $20 for Mid-Maine Chamber members and $25 general admission, which includes admission and luncheon buffet. Space is limited, so pre-registration is preferred.
