WFMJ reporter and community relations director honored

Posted: Updated:
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. 
 
She tells us the category the group chose to honor this year was for communications. The fundraising dinner will help the non profit group support programs that benefit senior citizens, women's health, and children's programs. For more information to join the organization log onto NCNW.org
 
The Youngstown Section was established in 1976. NCNW seeks to fill in the community's gaps, which exist in society, in meeting the concerns of minority women.
