YWCA Women of Excellence
About the Award
The YWCA of Lubbock proudly counts Women of Excellence as one of its annual projects, recognizing and honoring women in our community who have achieved excellence in their careers or professions and whose contributions to business, industry, organizations, and the community are crucial to the success of the same.
Since 1989, Women of Excellence award recipients have been inspiring others in Lubbock not only with their professional achievements but also with the work they do for others. By promoting women as leaders in Lubbock, the YWCA strives to empower women and their families in order to establish strong role models for future generations of young women.
Including this year’s nine award recipients, the YWCA has honored 281 extraordinary women in the 33 years of the event. The YWCA has now honored five women with the Jane O. Burns Award and seven have received the Mary Nell Strong Community Service Award.
