Community Leaders to Share Lessons from Daughters

Categories: News

York, PA – (April 11, 2019) YWCA York will hold its annual event with a twist, Lessons from My Daughter, on Tuesday, May 7 at 11:30 a.m. at Heritage Hills Golf Resort. This event includes a luncheon panel discussion with four innovative leaders who will share how their daughters have impacted them and helped shape their lives. Past events have focused on lessons learned from mothers.

The following community members will participate in a discussion and share their personal experiences with their daughter’s influence. United Way of York County’s president, Anne Druck, will serve as the moderator of this lively conversation:

  • Jamiel Alexander, Senior Fellow, The Aspen Institute
  • Angela Ang-Alhadeff, Administrative Coordinator, Leadership York
  • Robin Gross, Co-owner, Ground Roots & Strathmeyer Christmas Trees
  • Jean Treuthart, CEO, YWCA York

“Mother-daughter relationships can be complex, for certain,” says Jean Treuthart, YWCA York, CEO, “but it’s so gratifying to see the adult my daughter has become. The dynamics have changed as we’ve aged and I’ve gone from being her manager to a consultant!”

The Dorrie Leader Advocacy Award recipient will also be recognized during the event. The 2019 recipient will be announced on April 18 in advance of the event. The Dorrie Leader Advocacy Award was established in 1995 in honor of Dorrie Leader, a former YWCA York President. This award recognizes women advocates in the community and Mrs. Leader was known for her work as an advocate for social justice. She was a woman of commitment and strength and was not afraid to take a stand on a wide range of controversial racial and social justice issues.

YWCA York would like to thank UPMC for supporting this event as the presenting sponsor.
