Echo Garrett, a 1982 Auburn University alumna, award-winning author and co-founder of the Orange Duffel Bag Initiative, will provide the keynote address for the Women’s Philanthropy Board 2014 Winter Workshop, Expo and Luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

Garrett’s presentation, “Why It’s Not Too Late for Our Nation’s Most Vulnerable Teens,” will cap off the day’s events which include a morning leadership, mentoring and career panel session with three fellow Auburn alumni: Beverly Farrington, ’77, founder and principal designer, Accents of the South Inc.; Vickie Orr Wiley, ’93, Auburn basketball standout, Olympian and now administrator at the Harris Early Learning Center in Birmingham; and retired Army Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, ’74, Auburn’s senior counsel for national security programs, cyber programs and military affairs. Each panelist will provide insight into their occupations and organizations and serve as mentors for students and other attendees.
