Women of Achievement

Woman of Achievement

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 2019 Women of Achievement honorees will be inducted in the Academy of Women of Achievement at a dinner ceremony held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, at the Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College Campus Center, 1555 Newark Road. Event begins at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. All proceeds go to providing scholarships for Muskingum County women who attend either Zane State College or Ohio University Zanesville.
