CHICAGO (WLS) -- This week on Windy City Weekend, the queen of March Madness herself is here! Beloved chaplain of the Loyola men's basketball team, Sister Jean joins Val and Ryan for host chat.

The 103-year-old talks about her new memoir, "Wake Up With Purpose: What I've Learned in My First 100 Years." Sister Jean shares the life lessons she's learned in her long and impactful life, and what she hopes others can gain from it as well.


To celebrate Women's History Month, ComEd hosted a Women's History Month panel discussion and luncheon for female students who've participated in their past STEM programs. The panel discussion featured STEM professionals Michelle Blaise, Candice Smith, Ashley Walker and Ana Manzanares. The discussion was hosted by science influencer Dr. Kate the Chemist. The event was an opportunity for these young women to connect with STEM professionals, learn from women leaders in STEM and have some fun!
