Two Henry County women have been named among the most influential women in West Tennessee by a Jackson professional society.
Vicki Snyder, Henry County Juvenile and General Sessions Court judge, and Kimberley Martin, Ph.D., Bethel University's vice president for development and marketing, will both honored for their work in children's advocacy and education, respectively, at the 2023 Sterling Awards.
The awards from the Jackson Area Business and Professional Women will be presented Thursday night in Jackson.
Synder will receive the 2023 Sue Shelton White Award for her work to create change and her advocacy for children, especially children in need.
The award is named in honor of Sue Shelton White, JABPW president from 1927 to 1931, who led the way in Tennessee’s ratification vote on Aug. 18, 1920.
Dr. Martin will be honored as one of the 20 most influential women in West Tennessee.
