WCCS and Miles College Celebrate Women’s History Month

SELMA — Every year, March is designated Women’s History Month by presidential proclamation. The celebration of Women's History Month aims to recognize the significant contributions that women have made to society throughout history. The month is dedicated to raising awareness of the achievements of influential women in both the past and present.

Women's History Month theme in March 2023 is 'Celebrating Women Who Tell Stories.' This theme honors and recognizes the critical role that women have played in telling their stories throughout history. It highlights the countless women who have used their voices and creativity to tell stories that can educate and inspire people worldwide.

Wallace Community College Selma and Miles College joined forces on March 30, 2023, in the Earl Goodwin Theatre to pause and reflect on female leadership and challenges faced by women in the professional world.

Calhoun, Vice President of the Birmingham Division of Alabama Power; Catrena Norris Carter, Co-Founder and CEO of SALUTE SELMA Inc.; Pam Cook, Director of Multicultural Marketing and Community Affairs; Dr. Donitha Jones Griffin, Dean of Students and Executive Assistant to the President at Wallace Community College Selma; and Moderator, Dr. Joan Harrell, Director of Inclusive Excellence, College of Liberal Arts Auburn University.
