“I’m honored to stand with such a group of strong, talented and motivated women,’’ Williams said. “I believe it is vital for all of us to focus on how we can make our community better, and my focus has been on improving our air quality by working with Commuter Services to reduce the number of vehicles on the road, especially during rush hour.’’
Over the last 29 years, the Tribute to Women of Excellence awards ceremony has honored more than 640 women for their contributions to the workplace and community. The annual event has also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of YWCA programs for women, children, and men.
