YWCA Honors Local Women for Helping the Community


 The YWCA held their annual tribute to women on Monday night.

It began back in 1964 and honors women of the Ohio Valley for their good work in the community.

The evening recognized women who do things that sometimes go under the radar and to let them know the YWCA is paying attention to the difference they are making.

Amy Shuler Goodwin was the night’s featured speaker.

She spoke about how women can make a change in West Virginia.

Lori Jones, Executive Director YWCA told 7News, “we’re the ones who do the leg work, and force the change. You know, in 1906 when the YWCA was established, we were here to fill service gaps for women and we’ve done that forever, so recognizing women is exactly what we should be doing.”

Jones added the night is one of her favorites of the year.
