Murray to speak March 21 at BCA Triangle Breakfast.

Raleigh, NC, March 20, 2008 --( Liz Murray, whose life was the basis for the Lifetime Television production From Homeless to Harvard, will be the featured speaker at the Business Club of the Triangle’s (BCA Triangle) March breakfast meeting. The breakfast, sponsored by Inspire, Inc., will be held at the Brier Creek Country Club on March 21.

Murray’s story is exhilarating and her delivery innocently honest, as she takes audiences on a very personal journey where she achieves the improbable. Amidst the pain of losing her mom at age 15 and finding herself homeless, Liz always imagined her life could be much better than it was.

“Liz Murray has an incredible story to share,” said Penn Shore, president of the Business Club of the Triangle. “I look forward to having our members hear her inspirational story and learn more about what they can do to encourage their co-workers and staff to achieve what may seem impossible.”
