We are filled with gratitude as we reflect on the incredible success of The Second Annual Raleigh Young Enterprise. 

Women's Mentoring Forum, hosted at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School. Today's event was a testament to the power of collaboration, mentorship, and the unwavering commitment to empowering young women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all the incredible women who participated in the forum, contributing their time and expertise to inspire and guide the next generation of leaders. Your presence and dedication have made a lasting impact, fostering an environment that encourages our young women to pursue opportunities in STEM with confidence and enthusiasm.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the event facilitator, Ms. Monica Smiley, Ms. Iris Phillips, and Monitor Ms. Lena Tillett. Your leadership and ability to engage and inspire were evident throughout the event. The insights shared about professionalism and mentorship will undoubtedly shape the perspectives of the young minds in attendance.

A special acknowledgment is due to the distinguished panel of guest speakers who graciously shared their experiences, knowledge, and wisdom. Your contributions added immense value to the forum, leaving a lasting impression on our girls and motivating them to strive for excellence in their chosen paths.

In addition to our expressions of gratitude, we are thrilled to announce and congratulate the recipients of this year's  Scholarship, Erica Allen and Kamryn Lawson. These outstanding individuals will represent our school at the National Conference in Orlando, Florida. Their achievements reflect not only their dedication but also the support and encouragement provided by the mentors and role models present at today's forum.
