  • 25 Women in Leadership Awards

    Every year WEEK, along with other area businesses and organizations, honors some of the greatest leaders in our community. Thursday was the 14th annual 25 Women in Leadership awards luncheon. The 25 honorees for 2014 run the spectrum from healthcare workers and education advocates to business pros and Springfield lawmakers. One thing is certain, however, this entire group of women more than deserves this recognition. “It's kind of the unsung heroes, those women that don't always get a lot of the recognition, but do a lot in the community,” said Christy Howell, Retail Division Coordinator for WEEK/WHOI “When you tell people thank you, or give them a smile about something, I think it kind of encourages you to go on and participate even more,” said keynote speaker Bonnie Noble.
