Yellowhammer Multimedia is proud to announce the second annual Women of Impact Awards, a celebration of strong women who shape and propel Alabama.
This year’s class of honorees is stacked with respected leaders, advisers and mentors who empower others through the lives they devote and trails they blaze.
From rocket scientists to philanthropists, soldiers on the front lines against cancer, to soldiers on the front lines of our nation’s military – these women are a force in our state and we are delighted to tell their stories.
These honorees will be featured on Yellowhammer News during the month of April. We will tell their stories one-by-one each weekday and celebrate the group with fanfare on April 29th.
