The Heroines

Noon Nulan

is honored with a Brick from Mrs. Dick Price, Sr.

In the 1960s, with our children away at college, I became a member of several community and state projects. Noon Nulan served on several of the same committees. She was a very conscientious and knowledgeable member. She represented a minority viewpoint that many could not even relate to. She was patient with her opinions, but firm. She had a following in the community and was determined to not let them down.

The more I thought about the Plaza of Heroines, the stronger I felt that it would not be complete without a brick with her name inscribed. For the Plaza to represent the history of Wichita State University, it must show the diversity of those who were active and willing to give of their time and talent.

I am sorry that Noon died before she could receive this honor for she was an excellent example of both her race and gender.
