Seeking Star Awards Nominations for The 2019 Chicago Women’s Conference

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL– South Suburban College will be holding its 11th Annual Chicago Women’s Conference on Friday, March 15, 2019. The Women’s Conference Committee is seeking nominations for its 4th Annual STAR Awards. The STAR Awards recognize the accomplishments of fabulous women and encourage other women to also be STARS. The application deadline is Tuesday, February 12th and recipients are expected to be in attendance at the event.

The STAR Awards are presented for two different categories. The Alumna STAR Award will be presented for achievements by an outstanding South Suburban College (Thornton Junior College) alumna, and the Community STAR Award will recognize women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in business, community and/or education.

“How appropriate for our STAR Awards that this year’s theme is Leading the Way through Vision & Action,” said Nancy Burrows, Co-Chair, Women’s Conference Awards Committee. “We hope women from throughout the community and our college alumnae will nominate their deserving friends and colleagues and consider attending this truly enriching conference.”
