The honorees include the following:
• Civic/Community: Mary Winn and Frances Bickelhaupt
• Professional: Amy Berentes and Mary Wolfe
• County: Pamela Eggers, Maquoketa
• Religious: Rev. Jennifer Henry
• Young: Marquel Schultheis, Clinton High School
• Business Leader: Mercy Medical Center
• Unsung Hero/YWCA Honoree: Mardell Mommsen
A banquet will be held to celebrate their accomplishments on April 18 at The Tuscany Special Events Center at Rastrelli’s Restaurant in Clinton.
Reservations are now being accepted through the YWCA front desk. Pricing for the dinner is $25 and $20 for those 60 and older.
