The Upstate Women in Leadership Conference and Converse College are pleased to announce our fall speaker, Lisa H. Stevens. Ms. Stevens will share her leadership insights and practical information at 7:00 pm in the Barnet Room, Montgomery Student Center.

Lisa H. Stevens’ career in Greenville began as a city planner with Greenville County, which led to her being involved in a number of local and state boards. While serving on the South Carolina State Board of Education, she became acutely aware that the most effective way for education to improve in this state is from inside the classroom. This led her to assemble the team of community volunteers who began Langston Charter Middle School. She furthered her commitment to education by serving on the founding board of NEXT Charter High School. She also currently serves on the MedEx Advisory Board.

Ms. Stevens received a master’s of city and regional planning degree from Clemson University and a BA in sociology from Furman University. She has served as a member of the South Carolina Mental Health Commission, South Carolina Education Lottery Commission, Chairman of the Legacy Trust, Greenville County Planning Commission, Greenville County Citizens Roads Advisory Commission, and the Board of Directors Chair of Greenville Health System. Ms. Stevens was the first woman elected as the Greenville County Republican Party Chairman.

Admission is free of charge, but reservations are required due to limited space. Reserve your spot today!
