Roane women sought for YWCA tribute

-A A +A

YWCA Knoxville is accepting nominations of Roane County women to be considered for the annual YWCA Tribute to Women.

The event salutes women who are role models in their fields, both professionally and in a volunteer capacity, as East Tennessee’s foremost acknowledgment and appreciation of women’s contributions.

Eighteen finalists will be announced in June and invited to a reception in their honor at the YWCA.  

Finalists must be able to provide a biography, professional photo and possibly video recording in June and July in preparation for the event.

 At the Tribute to Women on Aug. 15, six women or women groups will be announced at a gala celebration. Honorees will be selected by out-of-state judges, whose biographies will be published in the spring.
