Fourth annual Women to Women Conference to be held at HCC, March 21
 
WELDON, N.C. – The Halifax Community College (HCC) Women of Excellence (WOE) mentoring group will hold its fourth annual Women to Women Conference, “Woman! Arise! Breaking the Cycle” on March 21 in The Centre as part of HCC’s celebration of Women’s History Month. The event will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast.

Inspirational speaker, motivational humorist, entertainer and author Wambui Bahati will be the keynote speaker. The conference kick-off speaker will be Leslie Kingsbury, HCC student, graduate of Penn State University and motivational speaker.

Bahati is a dynamic speaker and entertainer with more than 40 successful years of professional speaking and entertainment experience. Through trial and error, while recovering from her own mental illness, she became an expert on the challenges and, most importantly, possibilities facing the more than 20.9 million American adults who have been diagnosed with mood disorders. She also overcame many other difficult, challenging and seemingly impossible life circumstances.

Wambui educates, entertains, inspires and reminds audience members of the strength and power they were born with – the strength and power that is always available to them. She shares strategies, techniques and universal wisdom in an easy to understand, down to earth way so that each listener might reconnect with and focus on their strengths.

Cost for lunch is $8 with HCC-enrolled students attending at no charge. Registration runs through March 14. For more information or to register, contact Cindy Collins at 252-536-7222 or collinsc@halifaxcc.edu or visit http://halifaxcc.edu/woe/conference/index.htm to register online.

The mission of WOE is to set the standards for females pursuing personal and professional excellence. Values include modeling dignity, honesty, integrity, respect and responsibility as a way of life. The HCC Student Government Association chartered the group in fall 2008.

This event is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education PBI Formula Grant.
