Richland Two's Girls and Pearls

Richland Two hosted a Girls and Pearls conference for female students in grades 5 through 12 on Tuesday, November 22. Girls and Pearls is a new mentoring initiative where girls will learn how much they matter and connect with mentors who can help provide guidance in their lives. Women from various employment sectors of the community from city manager, judges, and principals, to church, business and law enforcement leaders were invited to participate in the event and impart "pearls of wisdom" to empower the girls. 

LCEU's student representatives were: Taaj Rockman, Jada Davis, Hannah Apodaca, Emma Ethridge, Amatullah Ballard, Riley Dempsey, Jordan Shaver, Emma Holden, and Imani Smith.

Mrs. Skinner, LCEU school counselor, attended the event with girls and Mrs. Chandler-McCray, LCEU assistant principal, served on the event steering committee. Ms. Ashley Jenkins from Columbia City Council served as our school's assigned "WOW", Woman Of Wisdom, at the event.
