The 52nd Annual Woman of the Year Brunch was hosted by the Valdosta Junior Woman's Club on Saturday, May 16. Three women from the community were nominated by their participating volunteer organizations and were judged to receive this award. Rebecca Daniels was nominated by the March of Dimes, Leigh Ann Hogan was nominated by the Junior Service League of Valdosta, and Maggie Davis was nominated by Leadership Lowndes.
Not only were these women present, but several past winners of the Woman of the Year award were there too. It was overwhelming to be in the presence of such dedicated and amazing women! Leigh Ann Hogan was awarded the title of the 2009 Woman of the Year, and gave a wonderful speech about the importance of service in our community.
