Keisha Mathies wanted to give something back to her hometown, and next month, she is doing just that. Mathies has organized a conference, which she is calling "Women on the Rise."
The event is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Hampton Inn in Lebanon, and it is free. Men are welcome to attend as well, but Mathies asks that attendees not bring any children. This is so the attendees can get everything possible out of the event.
