Boston Marathon bombing survivor Rebekah Gregory recently appeared at the second Brazosport College Foundation’s Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series event of the 2015-16 season.

Gregory spoke on her horrifying experience during the 2013 terrorist attack, as she was standing only feet away from the bomb when it detonated. She talked to the audience about her life-altering injuries, enduring dozens of surgeries and the eventuality of losing her leg.

More importantly, however, Gregory shared her inspirational story of acceptance and how she’s used her experiences to help others.  

The Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series is a series of events intended to help promote cultural enrichment for all women hosted by the Brazosport College Foundation.

This was the second of three Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series events this season. During fall of 2015, Astronaut Chris Cassidy opened the season. The final guest is child abduction victim Elizabeth Smart, who is scheduled to speak on April 7.
