SFCC Celebrates Women’s History Month
A celebration of Women’s History Month will take place on Tuesday, March 15, 7 p.m., in South Florida Community College University Center Auditorium, Highlands Campus. The program will present a panel of six successful local women in a variety of fields: Sheriff Susan Benton; Mona Sutphen, executive director of the Highlands Art League; Dr. Melanie Bond of the Center for Great Apes; Dr. Hilary Swain of Archbold Biological Station; Betty Ford-Smith, Highlands County educator and nationally-recognized art collector; and Jennifer Mattison, businesswoman, college instructor, and co-owner of Mattison Training Group.
Each woman will be asked to speak briefly on her own experiences: how she got to where she is, what challenges she faced along the way, how she overcame them, and what message she might bring to the young women and men of today.
The program is a community partnership between the SFCC Humanities/Social Sciences faculty and the American Association of University Women (AAUC). It is free and open to the public. For more information, call Dr. Charlotte Pressler, English and humanities professor, at 863-784-7247.
