BCMC Zoom Speaker Series

BlackCat Music Cooperative recently provided area students with their second motivational speaker program. Major General Barb Falkenberry talked about turning challenges into opportunities for a successful career. During her session, Barb discussed her childhood as well as her time spent in the United States Air Force as an aircraft navigator and her success as a 12 time military racquetball champion.

Barb was very engaging and provided many photos and items that kept our students involved and asking many questions! Thank you Barb for a great program and thanks to our students for attending the Zoom meeting. If you may have an idea for a guest speaker for our programs at BCMC, please contact Janet or Stacy at 304-500-2696 or blackcatmusiccooperative@gmail.com. BlackCat Music Cooperative, empowering youth through music!
