National Women's History Month Luncheon - Sold Out!
The Daytona State College Center for Women and Men and its advisory board will host their annual luncheon recognizing National Women’s History Month on Thursday, March 28, from noon to 1:30 p.m. The luncheon will be held in the Hosseini Center (Bldg. 1200), on the Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd.
This year’s luncheon honors a local woman who has made a difference in many lives through her work and community service over the past 20 years. Dr. Pamela Carbiener has served on the Board of Commissioners for the Halifax Health Systems, chair of Daytona State’s Center for Women and Men Advisory Board, board member for “Healthy Start” and trustee for the Bert Fish Foundation. Among her most recent accomplishments, she helped to bring the FSU College of Medicine Regional Campus to Daytona State’s main campus and mentors many of its interns. She is a strong advocate for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines and encourages students to embrace these subjects and to not be influenced by stereotypes.
Maj. Gen. Polly Peyer (USAF, retire d) will serve as keynote speaker for the event. Her contribution as a “Woman in STEM” was most recently observed in her role as commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Air Force Material Command at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia. National Women’s History Month, designated by Joint Resolutions of the House and Senate and proclamations by six American presidents, is an opportunity to learn about and honor women’s achievements today and throughout history.
The luncheon is open to the public. Seating is limited; reservations and payment must be made by March 15. Cost for the luncheon is $25 per person; proceeds benefit the Center for Women and Men. All payments must be received by March 15, 2013. For more information, call (386) 506-3564 or email email@example.com.
