Conway chamber names award winners

Five Conway business leaders have been named finalists for the first Women in Business Award to be presented by the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce.

“The chamber is proud to recognize the achievements of women leaders who embody high standards of excellence, dedication and accomplishment to their organizations, industry and business community,” said Brad Lacy, president and CEO of the Conway chamber.

The community nominated more than 30 deserving women in the Central Arkansas area. Of these nominees, a panel of Chamber executives from across the country selected this year’s Women in Business award finalists:

  • Brandy Strain-Dayer – Strain Photography.
  • Toby Hart – Take the Lead Academy, Inc.
  • Sonja Keith – 501 LIFE (501 Advertising and Publishing).
  • Linda Linn – Just Scrap It Metal Recycling, Linn ‘s Auto, Oak Street Auto Sales & U-Pull-It of Conway.
  • Holly Marr – Acxiom Corporation.

Each will receive the “Outstanding Woman in Business Award” at a sold-out luncheon scheduled 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, in the Student Center Ballroom at the University of Central Arkansas.

Of the five recipients, one will receive the prestigious “Diamond Achievement Award.” This award recognizes an individual who has inspired and empowered many generations of women and who has had a positive impact on those in her profession and in the community.
