Women of Distinction

Every two years, NEWMS honors a group of outstanding Northeast Mississippi women and one organization dedicated to helping women and children reach their full potential through focused efforts in the areas of Health, Education, Leadership, and Philanthropy.

You can nominate a woman or an organization in one of the focus areas (H.E.L.P) who has invested time, resources, and, most of all, her hopes and her heart, in cultivating a better, healthier community where women and their families can thrive.
