“I’m blessed to be able to share the stories of so many ‘Amazing Women’ who make a difference every day. It’s inspirational to learn how many women contribute to this state in terms of economic, educational, professional, and social achievements. You’ll hear the stories of the women you recognize, but also the stories of the unsung heroes who don’t always make the headlines.”
