The Young Women’s Leadership Academy Foundation, founding sponsor of the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, is proud to present the 7th Annual Odyssey Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, March 8th 2016 at 11:30 A.M. at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Our event theme this year—Full STEAM Ahead—recognizes and celebrates the innovative educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math that CGLA provides under-served girls in our community.
Our keynote speaker this year will be Mrs. Alma Powell, Chairwoman of the America's Promise Alliance, and wife of former Secretary of State, Colin Powell. Mrs. Powell is one of our nation's top advocates for children and youth. As Chair of the Board of Directors for America's Promise Alliance, she works with educational leaders across the country to help improve the lives of our nation's young people, as well as connect them with the resources they need to be successful. She is also a leader in the GradNation Campaign, an initiative to raise the nation's high school graduation rate to 90 percent by 2020.
