WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will hold its annual Women’s History Month program March 4 with East Carolina University’s Crystal Chambers serving as the event’s featured speaker.

Sponsored by the PCC Multicultural Activities Committee, the program will take place from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s Davenport Multipurpose Room. It is free and open to the public.

Chambers, a professor of Educational Leadership in ECU’s College of Education, will present “Our Voices, Our Vote” in correlation with this year’s national Women’s History Month theme: “Valiant Women of the Vote.” It’s a topic intended to honor the women who fought to win suffrage rights for women as well as females who continue to fight for the voting rights of others.

In addition to Chambers’ remarks, the program will include the presentation of the 2020 Woman of Substance Award, which recognizes a female employee at PCC for leadership, dedication to education, and commitment to student success.
