My name is Emily Kracht and I’m Centralia BPW’s president for the 2019-2020 year.
Thank you all for your support and trust in me to lead Centralia Business and Professional Women. My theme for this year is “We Rise By Lifting Others.”
Our club is full of women who have lifted others. BPW has helped women who suffer from domestic abuse and violence. We have raised thousands of dollars with the help of this community to fund scholarships for area students. My goal is to continue on this path and to extend our reach further into our community.
Learning from fellow club members has been one of the highlights of my life; this year I want to encourage all members to get to know one another’s strengths and assets through mentoring relationships. My goal is to set members up with a concentrated team of women to turn to when they need advice.
I want to encourage all members to continue investing their time into BPW. Members of BPW; whether past, present, seasoned, or newer have all done the work to encourage younger generations to step up and take responsibility and I look forward to leading BPW as president this year as we rise by lifting others.
