National Women’s History Month

Throughout history, many achievements made by women have been overlooked.  Advances in science, technology, engineering, arts, math, and social issues are among many of their accomplishments.

They are role models for our younger generation of women, and it’s our responsibility to continue to support and encourage the talents of young girls.
