Congratulations to this year's Mary Washington Healthcare Spirit of
Women Award winners! These extraordinary women in our community were nominated
by their friends, family and colleagues. Click
here to read their nominations and learn more about their impact in the Fredericksburg region.
The Awards Program honors ordinary women who do extraordinary and selfless
things to benefit their communities at large. These individuals represent
the unsung heroes of American society in their own unique and special ways.
Each spring, Mary Washington Healthcare selects three people who perform
extraordinary acts of service in their communities as the Spirit of Women
Regional Award recipients in Fredericksburg.
Mary Washington Healthcare selects one regional winner in each of three
- Young Person Role Model, 14-20 years of age
- Community Hero, age 21 and over
- Healthcare Hero, MWHC Clinical Professional
Winners are chosen based on the contributions they have made to issues
the community faces in the areas of work, family and health; and on the
impact they have had in their community and on the lives of others.
Regional Winners will also be candidates for the National Spirit of Women
Awards program. If selected as a National Winner, these women will represent
Mary Washington Healthcare at the
Spirit of Women National Awards Celebration Breakfast in Miami, Florida in July.
