Women of Achievement
The Muskingum Family Y established the Women of Achievement Program in 1988 to honor women who achieve a level of excellence in their particular field of endeavor. Furthermore, the tribute increases community awareness, understanding, and appreciation of how women contribute to the economic and social health of the community.
The 2023 Women of Achievement awards presentation will be held on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, in the Zane State College Campus Center with the program beginning at 6 p.m.
