The third annual Women of the Year Awards ceremony presented by the Bend Chamber/US Bank is just around the corner. These are among the most prestigious awards given to women and girls in our region.

The Women of the Year Awards showcases inspirational stories and extraordinary achievements by formally recognizing and celebrating the outstanding contributions and achievements of women and girls in our community. These awards honor exceptional women of all ages, of diverse cultures and roles, celebrating the power of individuals to spark change and improve their community and beyond.

  1. Annie says:

    This woman leads with her heart. Who else would choose to dive into the ugliness of sex trafficking and think, “I MUST do something”?

    Shannon Keith is just awesome, plain and simple. Her devotions are many: God, family, helping others.

    Oh, and have you met her? She’ll amaze you with her positivity and determination to make it happen. She’s lots of fun too!

    Thank you!
