SIFE group seeks nominations for Women in Business Awards 

February 11, 2010

PLAINVIEW – Wayland Baptist University’s Students in Free Enterprise team is seeking nominations for the Fifth Annual Women in Business Awards, to be presented at a mid-April banquet on the WBU campus.

The first two years of the awards were chosen from nominations from the Wayland faculty and staff, but for the past few years event organizers have broadened the scope to allow community members to nominate deserving women. The goal is to recognize women who have made their mark on the community business world by their service and accomplishments.

Deadline to make nominations is March 14. Nominees may be from the Plainview area. Nominations should include the woman’s business affiliation and involvement, along with her contact information. A brief essay should accompany the nomination listing any major accomplishments, awards and impact on the community as a whole. Those nominating should also include their own name and contact information.

Nominees will be forwarded to SIFE’s Business Advisory Board, compiled of community businesspersons, and narrowed to three honorees. Past winners of the Women in Business Awards have included Jan Alford, Sandra Aven, Carolyn Baker, Nell Hardage, Lena Faye Hill, Nancy Kernell, Jennifer Marley, Evalene McDonald, Jeanie Pennell, Dr. Ruth Rector-Wright, Mary Anna Self and Peggy Wall.

Nominations may be sent to the School of Business by email to – or by mail to Wayland SIFE team, 1900 W. 7th, CMB 237, Plainview, Texas 79072. For more information, contact SIFE sponsor Sam Van Hoose at 291-1029.
