Three local women honored by Soroptimist International of Central Yavapai Sunrise

On March 22, three local women were honored by Soroptimist International of Central Yavapai Sunrise, a women's professional service organization made up of women from the quad cities.

Keynote speaker was Amanda Barger, RN, 2009 SICYS Women's Opportunity Award recipient.

Kari Hull, founder of Children's Peace Project, a non-profit based in Prescott, was honored with the Ruby Award and a donation of $200 for CPP. Children's Peace Project supports micro-business and school initiatives in Cap Haitien, Haiti, and partners with other organizations for projects in Haiti.

Sarah Jensen received the Violet Richardson Award and $500. Sarah is a member of the Prescott High School S Club, a girls service club sponsored by SICYS. Sarah has brought projects related to CPP to S Club members including assembling school materials that Sarah distributed on a work trip to Cap Haitien in 2012.

Alyssa Leigh, a student at Yavapai College, received the Women's Opportunity Award and $1,500. She is the sole support for herself and her son and is completing her associate's in education at Yavapai College. Alyssa plans to continue for her bachelor's at Northern Arizona University.

Funding for these awards come from proceeds raised by SICYS through fundraising including an annual auction and bunco event. This year's fundraiser will be April 20 at Stoneridge Golf Club. More information about the fundraiser and SICYS is available at www.sicentralyavapaisunrise.com.
