  1. Bruce:

    This event got the highest participant evaluation since I became SBC Director almost 3 years ago. We hope the entire program will be aired on ATMC.

  2. I was so impressed with Donna Tyson and her presentation. A gifted speaker, she has a way of motivating and inspiring women to take care of themselves, but look beyond themselves with their gifts and talents to touch others and impact our communities. She brought me from laughter to tears and back to laughter several times! I am hoping to bring her back to town for the Fall Meeting of Women in Philanthropy and Leadership.
