May 9, 2019 Women's Leadership Retreat – A Big Success

Ten female student leaders from Central Penn recently traveled to Camp Hebron in Halifax for the fifth annual Women’s Leadership Retreat facilitated by Megan Peterson and Adrienne Thoman. The theme of the retreat was “Treat Yo’ Self” and focused on self-love, self-care and knowing your worth.

The retreat featured a number of special guest presenters from the campus and community:

  • Janet Bixler, Central Penn College – Self Care
  • Rickie Freedman, Reiki by Rickie – Self Love
  • Dr. Melissa Wehler, Central Penn College – Morning Meditation
  • Leanna Meiser, The Hershey Company – Mind. Body. Spirit. Honoring Yourself for Success
  • Nancy Chavez, Randi’s House of Angels – Healthy Relationships
  • Monica Goodfred, Chloe Pittinos, and Yuliani Sutedjo, Central Penn College – Chat and Chew Dinner and Discussion
  • Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, Central Penn College – Shifting Your Expectations: Using Positive Thoughts to Improve Happiness

The students also participated in cooperative games, a pampering party, a photoshoot with CPC alum Denise Zern, a campfire, an epic talent show, high ropes course and horseback riding! At the end of the retreat, all students received a copy of their new professional headshot (six students pictured) and shared the reasons that they ROCK (and they definitely do).

Feedback from our students:

  • “A great experience to have… The speakers were amazing.”
  • “It was a great way to bond and develop friendships with such understanding people.”
  • “I’m going to keep this amazing experience and make sure I practice all of the things I was taught.”
