  1. Wow, some of the nominees are VERY WELL DESERVED…some I’m still trying to understand.

    Who nominates individuals for this “award”? What are the qualifications, if any? Im dying to know!

  2. Not only who nominates possible recepients, but who determines the winner? I suppose The Light takes care of all of those details, but does The Light also pocket the receipts fro, ticket sales as well?
    What a deal!

    • Curious,
      Thank you so much for your interest in the 2010 Women of Distinction’s honorees.
      Here is the process for which you are curious about:
      Starting in December, nominations were taken via the Web site, http://www.everythingcenla.com and starting in The Light newspaper in January. Readers submitted nominations with the deadline being Jan. 30.
      A panel read the nominations forms and chose the 10 women based on the women’s contribution to their homes, churches and communities.
      Regarding the receipts, The Light does take care of all of the receipts and pays for everything as there are no sponsors for this event, which is done as a give back to the community.
      Again, thanks for your interest and your support of The Light and everythingcenla.com

  3. Having missed this event the past two years, I am looking forward to attending this year’s Women of Distinction awards ceremony and encouraging others to do so. This is a great way to honor and encourage individual service to our Central Louisiana communities. So many do so much without receiving or seeking a “thank you.” It’s good to say “well done” to those who give of themselves, their time and resources to build strong families, businesses, organizations and agencies to keep our community thriving. Good work, Sherri, and good vision. You, too are a woman of distinction!
