MURFREESBORO, June 29, 2017– — State Representative Bryan Terry, MD (R-Murfreesboro) announced that he and State Representative Dawn White (R-Murfreesboro) are hosting the Fourth Annual Empowering Women Event on July 10.
It takes place at the Sportscom Meeting Room (2310 Memorial Blvd.) in Murfreesboro beginning at 5:30 PM. The event is designed to inform women how they can become more involved in government at the local and state levels and also provides an opportunity to learn more about how they can make a positive impact on policy, procedures, and economic development.
This year’s featured keynote speaker is Scottie Nell Hughes, a journalist and former spokesperson for President Donald Trump. Republican Women of Rutherford County President Andrea Norberg, as well as Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) College Republicans President April Carroll will also address the audience.
Rep. Terry, known for his commitment to outreach, began holding the free event in 2014 as an opportunity to not only inform women in the community about opportunities to get involved and make a difference, but also to help provide the tools needed to be successful.
“This event is a great way for the women of House District 48, Rutherford County, and surrounding areas to find out how they can become more involved in our state’s political process and economic development,” said Representative Terry. “I am grateful to Representative White for her support and partnership in serving as a co-host, and I know our speakers will do an exceptional job in order to ensure the evening is a tremendous success.”
Rep. White, a co-host since 2015, currently serves as both the treasurer and secretary of the Tennessee House Republican Caucus. Her experience in state leadership is an asset to Tennessee and to Rutherford County and will also add valuable insight to the event.
“I was fortunate that my parents taught us about the importance of getting involved in our community and performing our civic duties,” said Representative White. “I am grateful to now be in positions where I can share my knowledge and experiences with the women who live in our community and hope to inspire and encourage them to make a difference in Rutherford County and our state.”
