A Paducah woman is one of four in the commonwealth the Kentucky Commission on Women is recognizing as an ‘outstanding female mentor’ and role model. Lori Brown-Wells is the Executive director at Purchase Area Sexual Assault & Child Advocacy Center.
Honorable characteristics recognized include the ability to ‘give of themselves’ and the ability to ‘inspire others to create their own history.’
Executive Director of the Commission on Women Cordelia Harbut, said “As Maya Angelou mentored Oprah Winfrey and shared in her triumphs and pain, we want to recognize these women who step into these powerful and motivating relationships and encourage others to do likewise.”
The Commission will recognize the women for their efforts and contributions throughout Women's History Month in March. An event later this spring will recognize the award recipients.
