She was also the Associate Director , Center for Women’s Veterans from 2004 to 2018. Her life experiences and service make Leadership Lessons an inspiring and positive read.
“This book reminds me of the leadership lessons (intended and unintended) we learn while in uniform and sometimes before! Dr. Moseley Brown sprinkles her intellect, guidance and humor for a life-changing reading experience,” praised Vernice Armour, the first African American female Naval Aviator in the Marine Corps and the first African American female Combat Pilot in the U. S. Armed Forces.
Books will be available for sale by the author.
Celebrating Women’s History
From the Revolutionary era to the present, women shaped Franklin County and contributed to the well-being of communities, large and small. Franklin County Visitors Bureau is spotlighting women with this exhibit—Vision, Voices, and the VOTE. Women of Franklin County, such as Margaret Cochran Corbin, Harriet Lane, Dolly Harris, Mary B. Sharpe, Margaret Disert, Emma Nicodemus Geiser, and Zelda Barbour Wynn Valdes were courageous, resourceful, and community minded. They joined generations of daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, and aunts across Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and America striving for a legal voice and civil rights.
March brings Women’s History to the 11/30 Visitors Center with Vision, Voices, and the VOTE, a second self-building installation to encourage public participation. Learn about some of the first women of Franklin County, including revolutionary veteran Margaret Cochran Corbin and Franklin County’s first female judge, Carol Van Horn. Snap a selfie in person or join virtually by taking a picture of influential women in your life. Share the words of women, who inspired you. Exhibit open March 1 to May 1.
