It’s once again time to recognize two recipients of the Women of Achievement Awards given out by the Muskingum Family Y.

Connie Norman received the Aldine Roach Flegal Special Recognition Award. Norman has been a member of the Zanesville City Council for 22 years and was the first African American woman elected to the position. She is also the Vice President of the Nelson T. Gant Foundation.

"When you do these kinds of things, you’re not looking for an award, but it feels mighty good when someone does recognize what you are doing," said Norman.

Corey Hamilton received the Josephine Phillips Healthcare Award. She is the Health Commissioner for the Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department. She said she’s always worked hard to better the community.

"It was a surprise to be nominated and a great honor and as I looked at the list of women who had received that award previously, I recognized so many of them and a number of them had been mentors to me earlier in my career," said Hamilton.

Both Norman and Hamilton will be honored along with the other award recipients at a Special Dinner being held at Ohio University of Zanesville on April 20th.
