2014 Woman of Distinction Award

Dr. Maryann Lehmann was the proud recipient of the 2014 Women of Distinction Award from the YWCA of Darien/Norwalk, CT. The award is bestowed in recognition of the outstanding achievements of a select group of women. Local residents and business owners nominate women whose significant and unique contributions have made a difference in the Darien and Norwalk communities.

The YWCA Darien/Norwalk Women of Distinction Nominations Committee reviews the nominations and selects the honorees. The award was given at a luncheon at Woodway Country Club on May 29, 2014. "These six women, each in her own unique way, embody important traits embraced by the YWCA: leadership, perseverance, courage and service. They are trailblazers and we are proud to hold them up as role models for us and for our daughters," said YWCA Interim Executive Director Julie Forsyth.

"Women frequently work behind the scenes to forge stronger families and communities," added MariLu Cleary, Event Chair. "We at the YWCA are grateful for the opportunity to shine a light on these women and celebrate the differences they make every single day."
