March 29th was the second Annual Lady Wildcat Empowerment Rally. The young women who attended were moved by powerful women speakers. They received practical tips for success and were able to build their self-confidence. The program ended with the breaking of a symbolic 'glass ceiling' and a delicious networking lunch catered by the Wilby Culinary Department under the supervision of Mr. Mango.
