    The Exemplary Womanhood Award

    The Exemplary Womanhood Award was recently bestowed on Sister Barbara B. Smith by the women students at Ricks College during their annual Women’s Week. Sister Smith, Relief Society general president, was presented the award by Ricks College President Henry B. Eyring and was honored for her life of excellence in the Church, and for her example as a wife and mother. In acknowledging the award Sister Smith stressed the great role of women in the world. She said that it is important that women know that they are the children of their Father in heaven and that he loves them. “It is necessary for women to know that they are different from men, with different responsibilities in life,” she said. “Not less than men, just different.”
