Since 1990, the YWCA has been calling out to the community of Prince Albert to honour spectacular women in one of five categories: Arts, Culture and Heritage, Education, Business, Entrepreneurship or Leadership, Young Women’s Leadership and Lifetime Achievement. In the field of Lifetime Achievement, Valarie Dewhurst takes the award. Dewhurst is the vice president and a founding member of the Concerned Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities organization. She has also worked at the Pine Grove Corrections Facility since 1989. The Women of Distinction awards and dinner event will take place on Thursday Nov. 22 at the Ches Leach Lounge.
