ROSELLE, NJ - Over 100 female students at Abraham Clark High School celebrated Women’s History Month Wednesday, March 16 with “Girls in Pearls," a program that emphasized gender equality and empowerment. 

The event, which took place in the Abraham Clark High School auditorium, featured special guest speakers including Roselle Mayor Christine Dansereau, Roselle Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Dr. Dana Walker, Alexandra Mickens, vice principal of the Admiral William F. Halsey Jr. Leadership Academy in Elizabeth, Tish Torres, a Roselle Catholic High School graduate and Digital Financial Specialist at Wakefern Food Corp., and Shirley Hollie-Davis, Director of Continuing & Professional Education at Union County College.

This is the fifth year of Girls in Pearls program, which is sponsored by Lorraine Brooks Body, a former member of the Roselle Board of Education. The program's intention, Dr. Walker said, is to introduce young women to women in leadership positions from a variety of sectors. 

"I'm inspired by the women who are here today," said Dr. Walker. "As women, there's a certain powerful connection that you can feel when we're around accomplished peers who have devoted their professional and personal lives to helping one another."
