The mentee program for the Commission of Women was the highlight of my senior year. My experience through this program was so enjoyable and I wish every senior girl had the opportunity to partake in some of the activities we did. The most memorable moment of this program was our invitation to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Department to partake in a defense training course. I love how much I got to bond with all the girls and enjoyed learning everything President Sarah Rhodes was able to teach us. What made this day special and empowered me as a young woman, was seeing her daughters show every one of the mentees the right hand, foot, arm placement and so much more. I hope that every young lady who gets the opportunity to go through this program feels empowered and can make relationships that stand strong.

The Mentorship program had a huge impact on my senior year! It allowed me to have so many incredible experiences I would never have had otherwise! I was able to meet girls my age from other areas who shared similar interests and goals. My mentor is someone I will never forget. She taught me so much and showed me what it means to be active in the community, and is truly one of the best people I know. Overall, the experience was amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

The Commission for Women Bossier City impacted my life in a number of ways. Being a member of the CWBC allowed me to make connections with many people and also taught me so many things I didn’t think I even needed to know. The women of CWBC are all so caring and helpful and if I could do it all over again I most certainly would. The opportunities that come with being a part of this organization are amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to get involved!

Former Mentee

Howdy! My name is Abbie Rutledge. I was a part of the Commission for Women of Bossier City (CWBC) mentoring program for the 2019-2020 school year. This program was one of my favorite parts of my senior year. I learned so many things including how to change a tire, self defense, and proper dinner table etiquette. This program provided me with such great experiences, and I am so glad I was able to be a part of such an incredible program.

Along with all of the amazing things I learned, I met some amazing people. I met other senior girls in the area that I would not have had the opportunity to get to know otherwise. I also was able to grow close to both my mentor and other mentors in the program. This strengthened my relationship building skills and provided me with relationships that I will cherish for the rest of my life
