Women of Achievement in the Field of Education:
Honoring Honoring Passion, Dedication, and Accomplishment

The Newtown, Connecticut tragedy raised awareness across the nation of the everyday heroes working within our education systems. The YWCA San Gabriel Valley is proud to announce that the 2013 Women of Achievement awards event will honor women in the field of education.

This 29th annual awards dinner will be held Tuesday evening, May 21, 2013, at the Pavilion in the Industry Hills Expo Center (16200 Temple Avenue, City of Industry). About 400 people generally attend the awards presentation, held from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Education is central to the success of our nation, and women have a dynamic and crucial role in the field of education. They represent 76 percent of our public school educators and 74 percent of our private school educators, in addition to the positions held as administrators, classified employees or elected officials.

Information on this year's honorees as well as registration information will be available soon.
