In 2015, Women’s Impact Founding Board Member, Sue Grabowski was named the Outstanding Business Professional of the Year for the Lake Township Chamber at their leadership awards dinner. Sue is the president and founder of Grabowski & Co. Her business has experienced incredible growth and accolades since the inception of Grabowski & Co. in 1997.
Women’s Impact Supporting Member, Renee Powell was one of the first seven women to be awarded an honorary membership to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, St. Andrews and first woman to ever play on that time-honored course. Powell, who played on the L.P.G.A. Tour from 1967 to 1980, experienced racism and received death threats. Now she’s one of the first female members of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in Scotland.
Congratulations to Sandra Watkins Cleaver, our 2015 ATHENA Award winner. She wowed the judges of this prestigious award with her compassion and enthusiasm for her work in elder law in Stark County over the years.
Sandra was joined by six other amazing women as finalists for the award. Shelley Loreen Boss, Alexandra Nicholis Coon, Nancy Gessner, Sue Grabowski, Laurie Moline and Anne Triplett have all made incredible strides in the leadership of women in our community and deserve to be congratulated.
