KSU First Lady Adrienne Allen-Brown presents ‘Changing HerStory’

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky State University’s First Lady Adrienne Allen-Brown announced a new Women’s History Month event.

Brown says ‘Changing HerStory: Breaking Barriers to Empower Women to Lead and Serve’ will include an inaugural four-day leadership trip through Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.

“I am inspired by our students and the entire Kentucky State University family. It is an honor to serve and I believe strongly that Women’s History Month is also about empowering others to contribute in a meaningful way to the forward progress of Kentucky State,” said Brown.

Dr. Glenda B. Glover is the Women’s History Assembly speaker this year. Glover is president of Tennessee State University and the 30th international president of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

Glover will speak at Kentucky State University Thursday, March 28 at 11 a.m. to honor and celebrate contributions and achievements of outstanding women.

A select group of students will also take part in a four-day trip which includes a visit to Spelman College, the World of Coca-Cola Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. Women in senior administration and leadership at Kentucky State will also share insights with students during Breaking Barriers sessions.

Students were selected through an application process and based on academic, leadership and community service credentials.

Dr. Elaine Farris, chairwoman of the Board of Regents, is also discussing the book, You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader.

First Lady Brown and 15 students will depart Kentucky State University after the Women’s History Assembly Thursday, March 28 at 11 a.m. at David H. Bradford Hall Auditorium. They’re scheduled to return to campus Sunday, March 31.
