Nearly 60 girls from across the River Valley were on the Arkansas Tech campus recently for the annual Girls of Promise Conference. The conference, hosted by the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, introduced girls to women role models.
During the conference, First Lady of Arkansas Ginger Beebe encouraged girls attending to never give up on their dreams.
Dr. Stephanie Gardner, dean of the College of Pharmacy at UAMS, served as the keynote speaker. Gardner told girls they could achieve anything if they believed.
