The guest speaker for this meeting will be Trisha Stafford-Odom, Head Women’s Basketball Coach at NC Central University. The former WNBA player and collegiate hall of fame inductee returns to the Triangle to continue her head coaching career after last coaching three seasons at Concordia University Irvine from 2013-2016.
