May 22 Women’s Day program features two popular keynote speakers

5/12/2008 —
The 27th Women’s Day at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus will get started at early, at 7:30 a.m., Thursday, May 22, in the campus’ Community Center. Women’s Day Committee Chairwoman Harriet Galida says, “This year’s planning committee has put together another annual event that is sure to please. The day will offer two keynote speakers, several workshops, a Community Service and Informational Fair, a luncheon, and more!”

The event’s featured speaker is Nancy Coey, a motivational speaker for more than 10 years, who developed her unique ability to see the extra-ordinary in the ordinary from more than 20 years of teaching freshman English, writing and public speaking at Ohio State University, the University of Hawaii and North Carolina State University. Coey will talk about “What Would Happen If I Did Remove the Mattress Tag?” The program will offer specific strategies on how to let go of self-limiting behaviors and challenge the audience to discover “untapped potential and power.”

The morning speaker will be Jennifer Antkowiak, mother of five, television host, and entrepreneur/founder and CEO of jennifer Productions. Antkowiak will present “How to Take Care of Yourself While You’re Taking Care of Others—Ten Minute Tips.” Many easy, all-natural ideas will be offered for everything from headaches to physical fitness.

Other Women’s Day sessions include: “Encouraging Women into Non-traditional Careers” presented by David Meredith, Penn State Fayette associate professor of engineering; and “Breast Cancer is an Equal Opportunity Disease—Find Out About Breast Health and Mammography” presented by Lisa Penn, RN, BSN, breast health nurse navigator at Uniontown Hospital.

Thirty area agencies and businesses will be represented in the Community Service and Informational Fair. Women’s Day participants can obtain information about services and volunteer opportunities these organizations provide at several times during the course of the day.

Registration for Women’s Day is required and participation is limited, so a first-come, first-served policy applies. Registration by May 20 is $21; after May 20 it costs $23. For more information or to register, call 724-430-4141.
