Zonta Club in Action


JULY 2019 | Zonta Club Members Enjoy Broadway Musical  "MAMMA MIA"


JULY 23, 2019 | Dr. Sharon Henry , Vice President, Zonta Club of Naples, presented to the 2019 summer STEM camp students at Emerson Academy in Naples who were interested in healthcare . She  gave an overview of her career in medical practice, academia and clinical research and provided insights on preparing for college and medical school . In addition, Dr. Henry updated students on recent advances in healthcare through technology which offer new career opportunities.


Emerson Academy @ the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples ( UUCGN) is a free  PSAT/ ACT/ACT preparation summer program for qualified high school Collier County students. The 3 week program is a collaborative effort of the NAACP and UUCGN  made available at no charge to qualified students through the UUCGN Social Justice Education Fund. The program is led by Mr. William McCormick.


The Academy’s objective is to expand the pool of qualified students from under represented , under-served backgrounds in Collier County who want to enter fields of science, technology , engineering and mathematics ( STEM).

This mission aligns with that of the Zonta Club of Naples’ focus on service and advocacy and ensuring access to resources ( young)  women need to reach their full potential. It was reassuring to learn that some students expressed interest in joining a Z or Golden Z club and remaining in contact with Dr. Henry and Mrs. Linda Pearson, Club President who also attended the event .
