The 5th edition of Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls has been unveiled by the Iowa Women’s Foundation, and eleven women from the Cedar Valley are honored in the book.
The book features 97 tributes to Iowa women who have made a difference in the lives of the people around them. From mentors to advocates, they each inspire others to reach their goals and empower women to be the best they can be.
The eleven women from the Cedar Valley are Sheila Baird, Linda Braden, Barbara Culpepper-Scheel, Kate Dunning, Cary Haurum, Julie Husband, Mary Janssen, Shanlee McNally, Mary Esther Pullin, Joy Thorson and Cindy Wells. They were honored at a reception May 17 in Cedar Falls.
