Past Events

Voices : Voces
featuring Shayla Rivera

BFB Foundation’s inaugural speaker event was an incredible success, bringing together students, educators, and community supporters to hear Shayla Rivera speak about STEM opportunities!

Shayla was generous in her storytelling, recapping experiences with NASA as an engineer, to stumbling upon stage performance as a comedian, and currently as a professor at Texas A&M.

The event came together through the partnership with Central Piedmont Community College, the Ruth G. Shaw Foundation, and of course, through the support of our incredible sponsors.

Thank you to our Sponsors!

Their generous contributions will help establish a new scholarship fund benefitting girls in both Charlotte and Guatemala through our partnership with Central Piedmont Community College.
