Greenville, OH, April 6, 2017 - The Membership Committee of the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) hosted the April 6th meeting which was held at the Brethren Retirement Community.

Diana Frazier (Membership committee), Chantae McMillian (Speaker),
Debbie Smith (Membership Committee Chair), and
Jane Carroll (Membership committee).
Committee Chairman, Deb Smith introduced Chantae McMillan, Olympic Athlete who is currently training for the Javelin event for the 2020 Olympics to be held in Tokyo. She spoke about growing up as an “Army Brat”, graduating from a Missouri High School and obtaining a scholarship in track to attend the University of Nebraska where she obtained her degree in Art education. She was a participant in the 2012 Olympics in London in the heptathlon. She spoke of the importance of setting overall goals and about visualizing yourself achieving those goals and each of the steps needed to accomplish them. One thought that keeps her focused is to ask the question “Did I get better today?”

Ten new members were also inducted at the meeting: Melissa Barhorst, Kasey Christian, Dara Buchy, Sherrie Foster, Sonya Crist, Sue Huston, Erica Menke, Annette Sanders, Deb Shiverdecker, and Michelle Hook. Also attending the meeting were scholarship winners and their families, Samantha Buchy, Hannah Grilliot, Genesis Malin, and Taylor Ward.
