Play this game to see if you can match them up!

2013 WOD 

A. This woman is known for her dedication to education. She’s been a respected educator in both Jones & Houston Counties. She currently serves part-time at Middle Georgia RESA as well as actively participating in Perry United Methodist Church and their Missions Committee. 

B. This woman has chosen a career in Real Estate where she has found a way to positively impact and mentor women. Amongst many honors, she recently received the distinction of being the 2011 NAACP Community Service award.  She dedicates her time also to political interests serving in many capacities.

C. This local woman has spent 30 years as a member of Kings Chapel CME where she has dedicated herself in service to the youth. She has spearheaded efforts to fund youth enrichment activities and chaired the Vacation Bible School.

D. This Hawkinsville native serves Houston County as a business owner. She dedicates her time and many business resources to support local missions and charities. She is also a published author.

E. This woman is near and dear to the library’s heart, having dedicated a significant portion of her career to directly impacting Houston County Public Library System. In retirement she continues to dedicate herself to worthy causes such as Brian Bowen Snax Sax, Loaves & Fishes, and more.
