Paul Quinn College is pleased to announce that Cheryl Benton, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Public Affairs, will join the line-up for the second season of the Voices That Matter women’s speaker series. This season, the themed series highlights the important accomplishments of women who have made strides in finance and the emerging fields of fundraising and philanthropy. Voices That Matter brings civic leaders from across the country to speak to the Quinnite Nation about the importance and impact of diversity in those fields. Benton will speak at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 13 in the Isabell and Comer Cotrell Student Union Building Grand Lounge.
