YWCA’s new CEO

She enlightened us on her journey to become the CEO at the YWCA. Then followed that up with importance of their programs concluding with discussing the amazing ladies being honored by the YWCA this year.

Each year, YWCA Charleston honors four Kanawha Valley women for their outstanding personal and professional achievements, as well as their contributions to the community at the annual Women of Achievement luncheon in March. Along with these women, a woman who has overcome obstacles and life challenges through participating in one or more of the YWCA’s programs is selected as the Empowerment Award winner.
