Determined to Rise, presented by Breakfast Business and Professional Women of Spartanburg in partnership with The Spartanburg County Foundation, was a powerful evening of inspirational storytelling.

Over 200 guests heard stories from local women, like Susan Lea and Tammie Hoy Hawkins, who spoke about the importance of education for all ages and breaking stereotypes. Special guests Katherine Goble Moore and Joylette Goble Hylick, daughters of famed NASA scientist, Katherine Johnson, delivered inspiring dialogue about strength, perseverance, and science and math education.  Learn More
