The S.I.S. Award honors those women who have persevered, survived & empowered others through their walk. These are women of will, strength, courage and impeccable resiliency. They are the mothers, teachers and leaders of our community who have silently endured and overcome extraordinary obstacles to not only survive, but to thrive and give back to others. Some of these women have gone through great lengths to overcome abusive situations. Some have unbelievable accounts on how they’ve managed to balance work, home and school. And yet, these women maintain an active voice within the community. They rarely complain, always moving forward to face the challenges at hand. They are silent warriors of unprecedented determination. Do you know a woman that fits this description? Nominate her for the S.I.S. Award today.
