We wanted to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.
Leading up to International Women’s Day, we highlighted four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.
Based on your nominations, four semifinalists were selected, and we introduced each of them to you all. From these amazing women, Ashley Condon was named Central Alabama’s Woman of the Year. Ashley is among the 100 local winners nationwide who will receive the honor of being named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!
