The annual Woman’s Day Celebration sponsored by Delaware Tech and the Owens Campus Alumni Association has been rescheduled. Usually hosted on the first Wednesday of March, the 2014 event will be held Wednesday, May 28, at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. This year’s recipients will be Mary Sue Bailey of Milton and Heather A. Block of Lewes.
The Woman’s Day Celebration, which benefits the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, recognizes the significant accomplishments of dedicated women who have overcome personal and professional obstacles and made a positive impact on Delaware and the communities in which they live. Since its inception in 1995, 45 women from around the state have been recognized.
To be eligible for nomination, a woman must be age 18 or older and a resident of Sussex County or the state of Delaware for at least five years or a non-Delaware resident whose employment or volunteer work impacted Delawareans for at least five years. Honorees are selected based on their professional or career achievements, leadership and vision, service to the community, impact on Sussex County and/or the state of Delaware, and personal and/or professional obstacles overcome. Eligible candidates should demonstrate exemplary accomplishments related to one or more of the following areas: arts, business, community service, education, law, medicine, and public service.
Nominations for 2015 will be solicited from June 1 through Aug. 1. For more information, contact Alison Buckley at 302-259-6086.
