WILLPower Conference at BVASD

On January 13th the first WILLPower (Women Invested in Learning Leopard Power) Women's Leadership Conference was held at Belle Vernon Area School District. The event was open to female students grades 6 - 12 and facilitated by Stephanie McHugh, Director of Counseling Services at BVASD.

Nearly 80 students participated and enjoyed break-out sessions featuring community leaders presenting on topics of adolescent struggles, leadership values, art therapy with Casey Clark (Off the Wall Arts), wellness, and embracing differences. 

A panel discussion presented by GRC Members Jennifer Codeluppi (Snapshot 47 Photos), Michele Ivill (General Industries), Julie Amsdell (Keystone Rehab Systems) and Regina Abel (Small Business Administration) touched on the challenges faced by women in business, leadership roles for women and what characteristics are needed to be successful. 

Keynote presentations were given by Dr. Tuesday Stanley, President, WCCC and Gina Cerilli, Westmoreland County Commissioner. 

The event was a success and the GRC was proud to be a lead community partner.  Plans are in place for the next WILLPower Conference.
