YWCA award recognizes everyday heros

Anyone can be nominated for SHERO award


The deadline for the 2013 SHERO Awards is Oct. 18. A representative from the Persimmon Women Committee will work with nominators about arranging a time to visit the nominee at work or home.

Sander-Silva said the visits from the Persimmon Women Committee have often been emotional.

“For the most part, it’s been a surprise,” she said. “There’s been joy, a lot of tears, and they’re just touched that someone would go out of their way to honor them. It’s amazing to see how touched they can be.”
