12 'Women with Vision' Nominated for Honor; Recognition Given for Education, Employment, Volunteer Service


Strickland, Sandy, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Sandy Strickland

One is a Duval County judge, the child of a crack addict, who was raised on the crime-riddled streets of Detroit. One is a professor with a passion for seeing that students with disabilities get college degrees. One is the driving force behind a village of history museums. One is a nationally known oncologist who welcomes patients and professionals from around the world.

And there are eight others, with similarly impressive accomplishments. No matter their backgrounds, they are women with a vision.

A dozen women have been named EVE Awards finalists. The awards, created by the Times-Union in 1969, honor the achievements of women in education, volunteer service and employment during the previous year. A panel of judges drawn from former winners selected four finalists in each category.

"All of our finalists are high achievers," said Carolyn Gentry, EVE Awards coordinator.

The winners will be chosen at a luncheon at noon Friday, June 1, at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront. Former ambassador Nancy Soderberg, a distinguished visiting scholar at the University of North Florida and president and CEO of Soderberg Solutions, will be the keynote speaker.
