Las Positas College to honor women military veterans today

College's Veterans First organization sponsoring program during Women's Military History Week

Las Positas College will honor women military veterans at 10 in a special free public program during Women's Military History Week.

Sponsored by the college's Veterans First organization, the program will feature Mary King, chief of staff to the president of PG&E, as the keynote speaker. King is an Army veteran and a West Point graduate.

The college's second annual "Honoring Women Veterans" event will be held in the Little Theater, Building 800, and will include a panel discussion.

"We are proud to honor the special contributions made by women in the military by presenting this event," said Veterans First Coordinator Todd Steffan. "We are very pleased to feature such a highly respected speaker who has many powerful stories to share."

After graduating from West Point, King joined the Army as a second lieutenant, serving in the Army for six years. Then she went to work at Indianapolis Power & Light while she pursued a law degree at Indiana University, and later joining PG&E.

"We know that people will be interested in hearing (her) and listening to the panel discussion featuring women veterans from different conflicts," Steffan added.

The event is free and open to the public, with lunch included. Parking on the Las Positas College campus costs $2.
