Salute to Women

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Several women were honored Tuesday for their outstanding work in the Helena community.

The YWCA and the Soroptomists co-sponsored a "Salute to Women" lunch today. Four awards were handed out. Sharon Haugen was presented the YWCA Woman of the Year award for her work finding housing for low-income families. Haugen says she is honored to win the award but she's only doing her job and what she thinks is right. She told the audience, "Remember it's the little things. When you say thank you to somebody, when you help them open a door or something, that also makes a difference."

Olivia Holter, Reverend Marianne Niesen and Samantha Cooley were also honored at the event.
