Maine Magazine includes Professor of Education Lyn Mikel Brown on its 2016 list 50 Mainers Charting the State’s Future. Co-founder of Hardy Girls, Healthy Women, Brown was selected for her passion about girl-led social change efforts and her “commitment to working with schools and communities facing the challenges that arise from poverty,” Maine Mag reports in its July issue. “I think we have underestimated the creative power of Maine youth,” Brown said. “We can do so much more to enable their participation as partners in our school and community efforts.”
