BOWLING GREEN Ky. (WBKO) — The Bowling Green Human Rights Commission Honored Local Women Of Achievement on Saturday at the Augustine Alumni Center.
The ceremony recognized Bowling Green women for their work in the fields of science, education, community service, business and health.
Entrepreneurship winner Micki Holmes of 440 Main said she loves knowing her work is appreciated in the community, but it’s more important to her to be a positive role model for other women.
“It’s so important for me even having the nomination because I want to serve as inspiration for other women to know that they can also be a forefront in the community and make a difference.”
Saturday marked the 23 year Bowling Green has hosted the event for local women. If you know someone who deserves a nomination for 2016, The Human Rights Commission said they usually begin accepting nominations in November.
