Leigh Ann Tuohy, the mother played by Sandra Bullock in the movie "The Blind Side," will be the keynote speaker. Tuohy, who is from Memphis, Tenn., along with her husband, Sean, took in Michael Oher, a homeless teenager, who later was selected as a first round draft pick in the NFL, with the support and love of an unlikely adoptive family.
The Women Aware one-day conference is designed for those who want information on how to expand business skills, personal growth, how to improve family life, and for those interested in networking with others.
