Women Of Distinction Announces 2019 Honorees

Thursday, August 1, 2019
For more than 30 years, the Women of Distinction event has honored women who give of themselves to make a difference in our community and beyond.

A Woman of Distinction is one who volunteers her time to help improve the quality of life for others.  She establishes standards that inspire and encourage other women to achieve their full potential.  She provides leadership and influences decisions that shape and define the city and community, said officials.

Linda Collins      Kari Hudson
Gina Dhanani               Carol Newton
Jennifer Ellis               Lila Statom

“We are thrilled to be honoring these remarkable women in our community,” said steering committee member Lynda Hood. “This year’s honorees have set themselves apart through their civic, cultural, philanthropic and environmental commitments. We are looking forward to celebrating and honoring them at our benefit luncheon which will take place on Friday, Oct. 25, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Tickets are $75.
