YWCA Accepting Nominations For Women of Achievement Luncheon

She is the woman who is always there, often behind the scenes, committed to going "above & beyond."  She is always taking on another project, not for her own glory, but because she sees the need, and steps up to the task.  She encourages the group to achieve more than one person ever could and fades back to let the group take the credit.  You have often admired and needed her.  Now is the time to honor her. 

Awards will be given for the following:
Emerging Leader – An up and coming role model, age 40 or under, who has demonstrated proficient skill and enthusiastic leadership in a career, family or community setting.
Community Champion – A woman who has devoted many years to making a significant difference for women and the community.
