Sr. Paula Turnbull thrilled generations of local children – and made a lasting case for conservation – with her garbage-eating goat sculpture in Riverfront Park. May Arkwright Hutton helped fight for women’s suffrage at the turn of the 20th century. Myrtle Woldson and Dr. Elizabeth Welty devoted their fortunes to supporting arts and culture in Spokane.
These are a few of the venerable women who have made Spokane what it is. Now we’re looking to celebrate the next generation of women leaders.
The Spokesman-Review, along with generous help from Bank of America, will profile 10 women this fall in recognition of their work and dedication to improving life in the Inland Northwest.
We’re seeking nominations of women who have been leaders in business, politics, art, social services, philanthropy or activism.
Please consider filling out our online form at spokesman.com/women if you know of someone deserving recognition. Deadline to submit is Aug. 19.
