BOARDMAN, Ohio - Two of 21 WFMJ's own were recognized as women of distinction.

Reporter Michelle Nicks, and Community Relations Director Madonna Chism Pinkard were chosen to receive the Bethune Heights Award.
 
The president of the Youngstown Section of the National Council of Negro Women, Yvonne Wilson, tells 21 News the two women were selected because of their history of service to the community.
