Meet the 12 phenomenal women we celebrated on Sunday, August 26, 2018 and read their inspiring stories.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Dr. Elizabeth Bennion talked about the contributions women make to our community. Founder Terri Russ welcomed guests and spoke of women's equality before presenting certificates to the 12 honorees introduced by Jenni Faulkner-Jones.
