March is National Women’s History Month, and SouthArk will celebrate the role of women in American history and society with a book display in the library, an exhibit in the atrium of the Whitfield Building and in the student center of the McGehee Building, and a panel discussion called “A Celebration of Women’s History” on March 17 in the gym between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
The panel will consist of Ms. Carolyn Dykes, a former police detective with the El Dorado Police Department; Dr. Kristi Mitchell Elia, a local dentist; and Ms. Diane Tatum, the Regional Customer Service Manager for Entergy Arkansas in Pine Bluff.
They will discuss the women from American history whom they admire, the women from their own lives who have inspired them, and the changes they have observed firsthand in the role of
women in American society.
At the end of the program, the panelists will take questions from the audience. The public is invited.
