The Indiana Commission for Women (ICW) presented 14 women with a Torchbearer Award yesterday at its 10th Annual Ceremony at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis. The women honored were selected from nominations submitted from around the state and have each made Indiana a better place to live, work and raise a family.
“Indiana Torchbearers are those women who have been pioneers throughout their lives or who have stepped forward as leaders by breaking down barriers to women’s full participation,” said Kristin Garvey, Executive Director for the ICW. “These women have become true beacons of light and their stories of courage, perseverance and compassion create a lasting legacy of inspiration for us all.”
