WELDON, N.C. – The Halifax Community College (HCC) Women of Excellence (WOE) mentoring group will hold its third annual Women to Women Conference on March 20 in The Centre as part of HCC’s celebration of Women’s History Month. The theme for the event is “Successful Women Think Differently.” The event will begin at 9 a.m.

Writer, commentator and certified personal and executive coach Valorie Burton will be the keynote speaker. The conference kick-off speaker will be Dr. Angelia Nelson, Elizabeth City State University professor and coach.

“We are so excited to be hosting Valorie Burton and Dr. Angelia Nelson as this year’s conference speakers. Everyone who attends will greatly benefit from hearing from these ladies. They are dynamic and the event should inspire our guests,” said Women of Excellence Advisor Cindy Collins.

Women of Excellence Co-Chair Tonya Mason added, “We want to invite the HCC campus and the Roanoke Valley community to attend this year’s event. The conference will feature not only our speakers, but also several break-out sessions that will give attendees a wealth of information.”

Cost for lunch is $7 with HCC-enrolled students attending at no charge. Burton will participate in a book signing following her presentation. Registration runs through March 12.
