Please join us as we celebrate International Women’s Day as part of the “Athens Forever” Bicentennial Series at Athens State University!

International Women’s Day (March 8th) is a global day of celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women while reinforcing a commitment to women’s equality.

The celebration will be held in Carter Gymnasium and will begin at 10:30 AM, as Kristin Scroggin, keynote speaker, delivers “Shoot for the Stars,” a discussion about being real, setting goals without guilt, and realizing the importance of self-care.

Lunch will be served at 11:30 AM, along with fun trivia games to keep everyone engaged and allow networking among other attendees. “Panel with Pizzazz” will be held after lunch, providing a chance for attendees to learn alongside each other as our panelists discuss a number of different issues, what keeps them motivated, and how anything is possible with the right support network.

Panelists will include: Elizabeth Thomas, Brandy McCain, U’Meeka Smith, Kennedy Malone, and Missy Ming Smith (moderator).

The International Women’s Day Luncheon is the perfect way to celebrate influential women who have made a difference in your life. Tickets are required and are on sale through Monday, February 28. Get your tickets today and join us!
