High-achieving students at Fontbonne Hall Academy were invited to attend the YWCA of New York City’s “Potential to Power Girls” symposium held at John Jay College in Manhattan last month.

The girls were able to network with other students to the social issues and agendas of today’s women. The goal of the symposium was to create a network of advocates to make changes that will benefit the next generation of women in school, career, and life.

Fontbonne Principal Mary Ann Spicijaric explained, “This was a wonderful experience for the girls. They each came away with a deeper understanding of some of the issues that women will face in the coming years and a strong desire to raise awareness as a step toward equality.”

The event was so successful that students are already signing up for next year’s symposium.
