WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will celebrate Women’s History Month March 5 with a panel discussion that centers on this year’s national theme: “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment.”
The program, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled to take place in the college’s Craig F. Goess Student Center multipurpose room, from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
On hand to share their stories of success will be Cassandra Deck-Brown (Chief of the Raleigh Police Department), Dr. Kelly Philpot (Family Practice Physician with ECU Physicians and Clinical Assistant Professor with the ECU Brody School of Medicine) and Linda Taft (Revenue Officer with the Internal Revenue Service and a PCC Alum).
Following the panel discussion, PCC administrators will announce the recipient of the 2014 Woman of Substance Award. The honor is presented annually to a female employee who has demonstrated outstanding campus and community involvement, attitude of service, commitment and caring, and willingness to 'go the extra mile.'
PCC has held a program each year since 2001 to celebrate the achievements of women. The event, which is sponsored by the college’s Multicultural Activities Committee, is held in March—in conjunction with the nation's observance of Women's History Month.
