On Thursday, Feb. 25, community members came together to celebrate the achievements of area women. 32 women received Tribute to Women of Achievement awards, and dozens joined the Tribute to Women of Achievement Honor Society, an exclusive membership for women who have previously been nominated and recognized by the event. This membership helps fund the Women Helping Women Scholarship, which is awarded to women who utilize Waypoint's programs and are working hard to achieve their goals related to education, career, and/or basic needs.
The keynote speaker of the event, Mary Sterk, owner of Sterk Financial Services, gave an inspiring presentation about her journey from 'Welfare to Wealth Management.' She shared her profound experiences and the moments that turned her life around, while displaying slides of her empowering artwork.
Thank you to all who attended or were part of making this Tribute to Women of Achievement event memorable.
