Springfield Mayor Debbie Wakefield, and Springfield natives Angie Logan Edwards and Alma Burton Edelen visited WCES last week to speak to students about nationally and internationally significant African-American women! Each speaker challenged students to be the best version of themselves and to use their gifts to bring about better communities and a better world. The first session highlighted Springfield native Senator Georgia Davis Powers. See photos below!
