The final Beach Girls Rock! workshop this school year will be held Saturday, March 25, from 8 a.m. to noon at Cox High School. The event is free and open to the school division’s young women in grades five through eight.
“Let Your Dreams Take Flight” is the theme and Jessica Larche, Emmy Award-winning anchor and reporter for WTKR News 3, will be the keynote speaker.
The Beach Girls Rock! empowerment series, established in 2013, is sponsored by the school division’s Office of Opportunity and Achievement. Each workshop focuses on topics for young women including leadership, healthy living and college-career readiness. Breakout sessions are planned and organized by the host school.
Parents are also invited to attend and participate in their own sessions which focus on school-related topics and community service.
Students can register for the March 25 event at their individual schools. For more information about the series, contact Dr. LaQuiche Parrott, director of opportunity and achievement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-263-1218.
