Celebrate contributions of women in the community

The YWCA is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Women of Distinction event at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.

The event highlights and celebrates the leadership of women in the Duluth area.

In the past 10 years, 30 local women have been honored as women of distinction and six local young women have been honored as emerging leaders.

Honorees this year include: Ann Busche, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services; Mary Lu Larsen, CHUM and Tina Olson, Mending the Sacred Hoop.

The emerging leader is Kate Horvath, the Duluth Playhouse.

Women play an important role in our communities. Help us celebrate their leadership.
