Andrew Och talks about U.S. First Lady Martha Washington during a recent Women’s Lecture Luncheon series event, hosted by the Brazosport College Foundation, at the Dow Academic Center at Brazosport College.

Award-winning television producer Andrew Och recently appeared at the Brazosport College Foundation’s first Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series event of the new year, sharing fascinating stories surrounding the First Ladies of the White House.

Och’s presentation, which was held at the Dow Academic Center at Brazosport College, came from his experience documenting the lives of every First Lady of the United States for the C-SPAN series, “First Ladies: Influence and Image,” which aired in 2013. Och offered an all-access pass to this unique sorority of women that many consider the most powerful and influential unelected and unpaid women in the world.

The Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series was created by the Brazosport College Foundation to promote cultural enrichment for women. However, everyone is welcome to become a member. The mission of the BC Foundation is to raise and administer funds for the enhancement of educational opportunities at Brazosport College.

This year’s series has one final event scheduled for the 2021-22 season, with one of the U.S. Secret Service’s first woman agents, Kathryn Childers, set for April 7.
