Liz Orbits, manager of WCC’s Student Resource and Women’s Center, sees women all the time who want to get a college degree but face obstacles. They may be single parents, lack transportation, or have no female role models to look to for guidance.

It’s an annual fundraising event for the WCC Foundation that celebrates the power of female leadership while raising money for women’s scholarships.
