Past Recipients

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 31st anniversary of the Women of Achievement program. More than 219 women have been recognized and we are excited to have others join this prestigious group of community leaders.

The honorees will be inducted in the Academy of Women of Achievement on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in the Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College Campus Center with dinner beginning at 6 p.m.

Thank you for continuing a tradition of recognition of women contributing to the quality of life in Muskingum County.
