GET EMPOWERED

THE MEANING

Being a SHERO means being strong, humble, empowered, resilient, and original.  The flower imagery included in the messaging for the event represents these five important pillars.  Each student, faculty, staff, and employer SHERO received a special event t-shirt and card to represent the meaning behind this important event.
