Each year, the YWCA honors a select group of women who are dedicated to improving our community and the lives of women, children, and families living in it. For more than a quarter of a century, the YWCA has welcomed these women into the Academy for Women of Achievement. On Thursday, October 11th, we will honored our 2018 class during the 27th annual AWA ceremony.
Nominations for the 2018 Academy for Women of Achievement are now closed. We will announce our 2018 AWA honorees in mid-July.
Last year's AWA Honorees were:
- Kaki Friskics-Warren, Executive Director of the Dan and Margaret Maddox Charitable Fund

- Ann Pruitt, Executive Director of the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services
- Sheila Calloway, Davidson County Juvenile Court Judge
- Laquita Stribling, Senior Vice President at Randstad USA
- Lee Ann Ingram, Philanthropist
- Crissy Haslam, First Lady of Tennessee
Our 2017 Corporate Honoree is the Nashville Predators.
