The Women of Tomorrow Awards is a recognition that comes from the Maryland Commission from Women (MCW). To further implement the Harford County Commission for Women’s (HCCW) mission, the HCCW decided to have a Harford County award. Young women who were chosen at the county level had their applications forwarded to the MCW to compete on the state level.
This year’s recipients are Amanda Baker Senior, Joppatowne High School; Amanda Brannan 7th grade, St. Margaret’s School; Beth Hildebrand Junior, Harford Technical High School; Carly McIntyre 8th grade, Bel Air Middle School; Amy Poteet Senior, North Harford High School; and Chelsea Shock Junior, John Carroll School.
On hand to present the awards were State Delegate Donna Stifler and HCCW Chair Lisa Tittle. County Executive David Craig also offered his personal congratulations to all the recipients. These ladies are doing a fantastic job of making the world a better place. The Commission is proud of their talents and accomplishments. We are hopeful that one or more of these young women will be acknowledged at the state level.
