Wednesday (June 28), WOGL’s Marilyn Russell served as host for KYW Newsradio’s eighth annual Women’s Achievement Awards, which for the first time ever honored women under the age of 40.
“It was an absolute honor to be a part of the Women’s Achievement event and to be able to share their five finalists with Remarkable Women listeners,” said Russell.
The WOGL host called the energy at the event “palpable.” She said everyone who leaves the awards feels “motivated and inspired to pay it forward.”
“It’s truly amazing what happens when you surround yourself with inspiring people and women,” added Russell.
Kristen de Marco of Gateway HorseWorks, Kelly Gallagher of SuperHero Project Inc, Dr. Monique Gary of Grand View Hospital, Lynette Luckers of the Marion Luckers Kidney Foundation, and Nicole Allen White of the Philadelphia Museum of Art were the five women honored at the annual awards.
Colleen Rooney, vice president of Global Communications at QVC, served as the night’s keynote speaker.
