MAYOR BROWN RECONGIZES THE WORK AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF LOCAL WOMEN DURING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATION

March 30, 2015 – Today in recognition of Women’s History Month, Mayor Byron Brown honored several individuals and organizations at the annual City Hall Women’s History Month program. 

“Today’s honorees represent a small fraction of the women in our community that make a significant contribution to the growth and development of our city,” said Mayor Brown. “This year’s honorees are a part of our business, government, education and non-profit sectors.”

This year’s honorees are:

  1. Stephanie Lynn Crockatt
