For the past decade, the Pioneering Women organization has been honoring women who have been trailblazers in our community.

This year is no different. Thursday night the group presented the women to the media during a social at D' vine Wine.

We're very pleased to say that our own Jackie Simien, who's been recovering at home from a recent illness, is one of the six women being honored this year.

The theme is shattering the glass ceiling.

A luncheon for the honorees will take place August 8 at the Holiday Inn plaza.
