Women’s Groundbreakers Storytelling Series comes to GPS
Stories. Sometimes stories are all we have to remember. Stories teach, enrich, and bring to life ideas and events of the past. The Women Groundbreakers Storytelling Series is devoted to telling the stories of women from different ethnic, cultural, and career backgrounds.
The story series involves topics such as immigration, education, civil rights, and the military. Each woman brings a different story to the table to show how one or more of these things has impacted her life and the lives of other women around her.
Women’s Ground Breakers was created in 2001 in order to be a source of diversity, inclusion, and understanding. They have joined in the Lean in Movement which emphasizes cultivating community and education among women all over the nation.
On Tuesday at the Girls Preparatory School, the two women that head Chattanooga’s educational system, Stacy Goodwin Lightfoot and LuLu Copeland, will be speaking about their experience in the field of education and giving advice based on those experiences.
Lightfoot is the Vice President of College & Career Success at the Public Education Foundation and Copeland is the Director of Workforce Development & Training at Chattanooga State Community College. Each will speak about the different difficulties and inspirations they have encounter throughout the courses of their careers. Come hear their stories.
