Congratulations to 40 women deserving the spotlight

By Kearn Cherry, Lighthouse BPW president //

More than 90 nominees poured in from across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We are proud to be able to recognize 40 finalists this year. The judges will select one winner in each of the seven categories: Medical, Nonprofit, Corporate, Government/Military, Education, Entrepreneur, and Young Careerist (ages 21-35). From these winners, a Woman of the Year will be named.

In addition this year, Lighthouse Business & Professional Women will recognize a Member of the Year and Volunteer of the Year. To be considered for an award, nominees must have had 10 years of work experience in her most recent career field; live and/or work in Jackson, Harrison or Hancock County; and demonstrate excellence and leadership in her career field.

Lighthouse BPW’s annual awards will be the highlight of a fantastic new conference called SUCCESS. The day’s events will inspire, empower and mentor women. We are very excited to partner with Gulf Coast Woman magazine and other sponsors to present a day that will not only showcase deserving women, but also offer an incredible experience to all businesswomen on the Coast.

Sign up for the conference at and help us celebrate our finalists. See you there!
