ATLANTA - On Thursday, November 11, the Georgia Women’s Institute will recognize four women who have demonstrated exemplary leadership at its Annual Founders Awards Dinner at the University of West Georgia (UWG) in Carrollton.

The Awards Dinner is held in conjunction with the University of West Georgia’s 3rd Annual Nellie Duke Leadership symposium sponsored by the Lamar Plunkett Lecture Series Continuing Education Program. “We are excited to be joined by the Georgia Women’s Institute in this full day focusing on the accomplishments of women which begins with an 11:00 a.m. ceremony honoring women veterans and a symposium of activities throughout the afternoon,” said Dr. Jim Agan, Director.

“The Georgia Women’s Institute looks forward each year to recognize women around the State who have demonstratively contributed to the community and the well-being of women and girls,” Nellie Duke, President/CEO states. “There are scores of women throughout Georgia who deserves equal recognition for their work in promoting programs to enhance the lives of women and girls, thus, making our selection even more difficult.”
