WOMEN'S HALL OF FAME
For 26 years, the Women's Hall of Fame has honored a select group of women and one exceptional female high school student, who have made extraordinary contributions to their families, workplaces and/or communities and displayed a dedication to the YWCA mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. Since 1990, the YWCA Canton is proud to have honored 162 of Stark County's women of achievement.
