Women of Achievement

A message from Zane State College and Ohio University Zanesville

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Zane State College and Ohio University Zanesville have decided to hold Women of Achievement virtually this year! Thank you for your understanding.

The 2020 Women of Achievement recipients (listed below) and sponsors will be recognized through a video tribute that will be posted on Facebook the week of April 4. The videos will air on the Muskingum County Women of Achievement, Zane State College, and Ohio University Zanesville Facebook pages. Make sure you like or follow these pages so you are alerted when the videos are posted. In addition, all the videos will be available in a playlist on Zane State’s YouTube channel later in April.  Presenting sponsors will also be featured on the recipient billboards that will be posted around Muskingum County in early April.
