Community leaders. Generous volunteers. Women committed to helping children, the elderly, those in need, the arts, business development, education and more. Devoted to our area. Passionate about causes. Those are the credentials for the Virginia K. Shehee Most Influential Woman Award.
The award is named for civic leader, businesswoman and philanthropist Virginia K. Shehee, who passed away in 2015, after decades of service to northwest Louisiana. It honors women who have made significant contributions to our community and who may do much of their work behind-the-scenes.
A finalist will be chosen by a panel of community members and will be honored at an awards luncheon. The effect of this event also extends to raising money for Holy Angels, a cause that Virginia Shehee championed.
The 2017 Virginia K. Shehee Most Influential Woman honored Dr. Peggy Murphy Mollie Corbett, Ann Stokes, Kelli Todd, Liz Swaine and Sister Sharon Rambin as finalists. Dr. Peggy Murphy took home the top honor. Congratulations to this empowering class of women!
The 2018 date for Virginia K. Shehee Most Influential Woman will be announced in the near future. Check back for details!
