Women's Leadership Alliance Welcomes Sarah Patterson

The Women's Leadership Alliance of the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama welcomed legendary Alabama Gymnastics Coach Sarah Patterson as guest speaker for their Spring Luncheon March 25, at Hotel Capstone.

Patterson, who boasts more than a thousand wins and 43 post-season championships, including six NCAA Championships, spoke to the group on the importance of women supporting women. 

"You never know the impact you can have on someone's life," Patterson said. "I challenge you to think of one woman who you can make a difference in her life. One person can make your career - and your life."

Patterson also shared with the WLA the story of how the Power of Pink came to be, and how her personal story touched many lives, and many athletics programs around the country. She spoke of the role the DCH Foundation has played in the well being of women without insurance throughout West Alabama.
