YWCA Milestones: A Tribute to Women

The YWCA has paid tribute to more than 100 extraordinary women over the past 18 years, who are the very embodiment of the YWCA and our mission.

On March 13, 2014, the YWCA hosted the 19th Annual Milestones Award Luncheon. Together, with our presenting sponsors, ProMedica, WTVG 13abc, and The Blade, honored seven outstanding women from the Toledo Area, who have accomplished great milestones in their area of expertise. Through their leadership and example, each of these women opened doors for other women, enabling them to achieve milestones of their own.

Congratulations to the 2014 MIlestones Honorees: Marianne Ballas (Business), Leslie Adams (Arts), Vallie Bowman-English (Government), Sonia Najjar (Sciences), Kim Sidwell (Social Service), Barbara Eikost (Volunteerism), and Susan Martyn (Education).
