March is dedicated to highlighting the contributions of women in history and to empower the next generation of women.   Empowerment opportunities are needed here to enrich the lives of women living and working in the Pee Dee.” As a result of this need, Girls University, in association with Whitney Davis Vocal Studio, is hosting “SHINE ON” A Celebration of Women.
