Daughters of Greatness

Throughout the year, the Daughters of Greatness breakfast series invites prominent women engaged in social philanthropy, activism and pursuits of justice to share their stories with the Louisville community. The Daughters of Greatness series provides a place for dialogue and discussion on current issues of justice, community engagement, and social movements within the Louisville area and beyond.

The Muhammad Ali Center is thrilled to welcome Cathe Dykstra as its "Daughters of Greatness" speaker on Friday, June 20, 2014.

Cathe Dykstra is the Chief Possibility Officer (President & CEO) of Family Scholar House, whose mission is to end the cycle of poverty by providing support to disadvantaged single parents and their children.

Cathe has a B.A. in Economics from Wake Forest University, with banking, financial, and social services experience assisting special populations through innovative approaches to attaining and maintaining self-sufficiency. Cathe is committed to promoting the importance of education and long-term self-sufficiency through career-track employment. She sees her role as changing the paradigm for work with families in poverty from short-term support to long-term solutions. Cathe finds fulfillment not only through her work but also as a community advocate, wife, mother, daughter, aunt, niece, friend, confidant, and avid baseball fan.
