According to a statement sent to the -, Mercer County Commissioner Sam Frisby, “ This will be one of the most important meetings CCABC has ever had. The opportunity to recognize women this month is really important and the fact that our Women’s Leadership Panel features some of the brightest and most thoughtful women leaders in the county is big. The acknowledgment of the “unsung sheros” in our community, the First Ladies of The Church, is long overdue. Further, the recognition of our area high school sports team and their success this winter season is very purposeful as well as a good opportunity for us as adults to demonstrate our belief in our young people. These student-athletes are role models in their community as well as for their fellow students and CCABC would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the time they put into their sport and their school, their hard work and their accomplishments.”
