'Outstanding Women' recognized for service

LAWTON, Okla._ Five women were recognized Saturday night with the “Outstanding Women of Comanche County” award.

The Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women recognizes women in the community who help to make a positive social change. The nominees must serve others and contribute to bettering the quality of life for women across southwest Oklahoma.

The 2014 recipients are as follows: Wyonna Alberty, Barbara Curry, Candace McCoy, Connie McDonald and Renae Sexton.

“We’re recognizing women that have gone above and beyond,” says Chearlene Glover-Johnson, chair of the commission. “Women who could be your next door neighbor, someone you saw at the grocery store, someone you sat next to at church, that really gives of themselves through their volunteer service that has an impact on our community."

The goal of the Status of Women is to identify and address the challenges and issues facing women in our area.
