2021 Valley Living Women Citizens of Distinction – Through the Pandemic The Distinction Awards event was created to spotlight and recognize the important role women play locally in the economy and in our communities. In past years, the honorees represented the most distinctive women in business, government, education and not-for-profit fields. The Coronavirus put a strain on many, but nothing compared to what was asked from our healthcare workers. This year, as a show of appreciation and to applaud their strength and determination, we will be paying tribute to ALL in this field. Honorees will be selected based on their accomplishments and community involvement. Of these honorees, an overall Citizen of the Year will be selected. All honorees and winners will be recognized at the awards event Friday, Aug. 6, at the Montrose Pavilion.
