April 2013 President's Message
We just celebrated Women’s History Month with a tribute to women of excellence, ingenuity, and commitment with our Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards Gala. We made history with a sold out event; and one where we raised more scholarship dollars than ever before. Congratulations to a team effort all around. Well done!!! There are so many people to thank:
