Our Thanks
Thank you for supporting The Bobcat International Women’s Day Career Mentoring & Scholarship Initiative’s efforts to connects women from all walks of life, ethnicities, age and social economic backgrounds and celebrate the life and legacy of my friend and mentor, Alice Spivey. It is because of you that Bobcat is able to honor exceptional women for their commitment to mentoring, outstanding leadership in creating projects and for being a “stand out” and reaching out and giving back to their communities.

"Making a difference in the lives of women, by loving, sharing and caring."
