Meet the 2013 YWCA Women of Achievement

(Continued)

She and her violinist husband, Jerry, enjoy adding to the 35 countries they have currently visited. Throughout her life, she has been influenced by unforgettable people; she takes seriously this quote from Maya Angelou : “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

COUNTY WOMAN OF ACHIEVEMENT – PAMELA EGGERS

Eggers, of Maquoketa, is this year’s County Woman of Achievement. Nominator Ronelle Clark wrote, “If everyone in this world had one ounce of her energy and enthusiasm for life, we would all be most fortunate. No matter what life throws her way she has the faith to know it will all work out OK.” After working many years in the legal and human resources fields, Pam became a volunteer and now staff member of the YWCA Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Resource Center in Maquoketa.

She discovered that giving of her time and energy, helping those in need, being a confidant and going above and beyond what is expected is what fills her tank. She chairs Sarah Circle, is a Stephen Minister, serves on the congregation council, is secretary of First Lutheran Women’s Board and chairs the Outreach Committee of the Church. Feeling it is also important to participate in civil organizations she does so by serving as president of the local Coalition Against Family and Domestic Violence, treasurer of Jackson County Prevent Child Abuse Coalition and secretary of the Clinton/Jackson Coalition for the Homeless and participates in the Community Partners for Protecting Children, Jackson County Prevention Coalition and the Jackson County Planners.

She and husband Gary have been married for 20 years and have a blended family of 12 children.

BUSINESS LEADER – MERCY MEDICAL CENTER

“Women have shown outstanding leadership in so many areas. Mercy has sponsored and offered resources to help the community become healthier by providing community programs, offering time for associates to work on committees and events that will continue the healthy state initiative.” wrote nominator Andrea Barnett.
