ZANESVILLE, OH- The Women of Achievement Awards have made it their mission to recognize and honor women in our area who have contributed to our community.

Whether it’s through education, volunteering, managerial work and many more areas….the Muskingum County YMCA, Ohio University Zanesville and Zane State want to commemorate their hard work and dedication. Member of the community of Women of Achievement Ruthie Ware discussed about why it’s important to honor women.

“I think that sometimes women get a little overlooked or in the background you know like the executive secretary or you know whatever. So, this is a chance for us to spotlight all the women in the Muskingum County area that have done great things to contribute to the community.”
