Women of the Year recognized in South Bend

Posted:
The YWCA's Women of the year are being honored in South Bend Thursday night.   It's a tribute that recognizes community leaders who help create positive changes in the lives of women and their children in our community. 

This year's Women of the Year are:

Jacqueline Barton, the President & CEO of Specialized Staffing Solutions.  She's a former member of the YWCA Board of Directors.  Right now, she's the President of the St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and serves on the board of St. Joseph County Bridges Out of Poverty.  Jacqueline is being recognized for empowering women through work and strengthening families.

Nancy King, a longtime champion of the YWCA.  Many believe without the former YWCA Board President's drive and determination, the YWCA would not exist in our community today.  Nancy is being honored for her "unwavering commitment to the YWCA and it's work to improve the lives of women and their children."

Candy Yoder, for dedicating her life to protecting children and supporting families. She began her career in social work investigating child abuse cases for the New Mexico Department of Human Services. Twenty five years ago she began working with Child and Parent Services (CAPS) of Elkhart County, and has spent the last five years as CEO. Candy is being recognized by the YWCA for her fight to end child abuse and strengthen Elkhart County families.

The honorees are being recognized at the Hilton Garden tonight, Thursday night, on the Saint Mary's Campus.
