The Muskingum Family Y established the Women of Achievement Program in 1988 to honor women who achieve a level of excellence in their particular field of endeavor. Furthermore, the tribute increases community awareness, understanding, and appreciation of how women contribute to the economic and social health of the community. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Women of Achievement program. More than 242 women have been recognized and we are excited to have others join this prestigious group of community leaders.
