Congratulations to the 2018 Tribute to Women nominees

Constant Contact.pngEach year, Waypoint upholds its rich tradition of recognizing women for their professional and volunteer contributions to the community through the Tribute to Women of Achievement event. Reflecting Waypoint’s mission of improving lives, these women are agents of change in the Corridor, whether it’s through innovation, organizational enhancement, leadership, personal life, or service to others. Their efforts demonstrate the positive influence and impact women have on our area every day. 

We are ever-grateful for their commitment to bettering the world around them. They truly embrace Waypoint’s vision of inspiring hope, courage, and strength in hearts of others, and are continuing proudly in the footprints of women honored in the 35 years before them.
