The day hit a high note when Honore Stockley, Connections co-chair, introduced the four finalists for the first “Woman of Power Award.” Each of the finalists – Kristen Shanley, Dr. Leia Lindley-Wahrendorf, Lisa Yesensky and Jennifer Cook – listened as their many accomplishments were shared with those in attendance.

“There are so many women who generously give their time to a great number of important causes throughout our community,” said Evelyn LiVoti, Connections co-chair. “With four of the very best as finalists, the task of selecting just one as the top winner was very, very difficult. This year it was our great privilege to honor Jennifer Cook as the first Woman of Power Award recipient.”

All four finalists were given a single rose.

Cook received a plaque extolling her accomplishments.

The other three finalists each received a certificate recognizing them as a finalist.
