GREENVILLE – Teen-age girls in grades 7through 12 are invited to attend the Powerful Women Summit where they will have an opportunity to meet with local, successful career women who represent athletics, culinary arts, aviation, finance and banking, city management, education, engineering, law, and research.

The brunch will be held from 9:30 a.m. t0 12:30 p.m. Jan. 25 at Michelin North America Inc. in Greenville.

Presented by the Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands, the program connects the girls with local leaders so they can ask questions and gain advice about how to achieve their career goals.

Both Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scout are encouraged to participate. The women will rotate among the tables where the girls are seated so the girls can engage in small group discussions asking questions about the women’s backgrounds, successes and challenges.

Ambassador Girl Scout Lindsey Loparo will be the emcee. Local, participating women include Jackie Carson, head women’s basketball coach at Furman University; Kristy Hedrick, senior professor of military science at Wofford College; Sandra Kolvick, engineer at GE Energy; Deborah Long, executive director of YWCA Greenville; Linda McGuigan, vice president of retail banking for TD Bank; June Satterfield, director of North American R&D Process and Training Development for Michelin North America; Sarah Spruill, attorney with Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, PA; Stephanie Monroe Tillerson, city manager for the City of Woodruff; Katie E.
