Dr. Carolyn Long
The Iris Awards, honoring outstanding women in Southwest Washington, has announced the recipients of its two final 2017 award categories. Dr. Carolyn N. Long and Judie Stanton will be honored at the 2017 Iris Awards ceremony on Wednesday, Mar. 8. The previously announced 2017 Iris Award honorees are Jody Campbell, Temple Lentz, and Deena Pierott.
Dr. Long is receiving an award that is new to this year’s ceremony. The Iris H-RoC Award honors women in the community who have promoted civil discourse, teamwork, collaboration, and cooperation. The second annual Legacy Award will be presented to Stanton, co-chair of the League of Women Voters of Clark County. Stanton was first honored in 2002 for her service as a county commissioner. The Legacy Award is presented to a former Iris Award or Women of Achievement recipient whose continued leadership remains an enduring inspiration for others.
The Iris Awards ceremony will be held at Clark College’s Gaiser Student Cente . The event begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale through the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce at http://tinyurl.com/iris2017.
