Soroptimist International is a women’s organization that goes to great lengths to promote concerns, challenges and achievements of women everywhere. With the multiple award programs of the organization, deserving women and girls in the community are recognized and honoured.

“We are very pleased this year to present Ashley Jackson with our “Ruby Award: Women helping Women”, said Sherri Smith, of Soroptimist International.  Ashley Jackson Boudoir is a Red Deer portrait studio that focuses on female empowerment.  This award honours a woman that has worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional and volunteer work, and Ashley says that sums up her life’s goal in one magical sentence!

The club will also present the first “Live Your Dream Award” to Adra Mckenzie, a single mom of two boys from Lacombe.  She is enrolled at Burman University taking her Bachelors BioMedical Sciences with the intention of one day becoming a pharmacist.  The second “Live Your Dream Award” will be presented to Cheralee von Gunten, a single mom of four from Red Deer.  She is currently enrolled at Athabasca University taking her Bachelor of Arts in English and Bachelor of Arts in Women’s and Gender Studies.  She intents to pursue a career in writing, or in a field that contributes to addressing women’s issues.  The third “Live Your Dream Award” will be presented to Lindsey Steeves, a single mom of two from Eckville.  She is currently enrolled at Grant MacEwan University completing a Correctional Services Diploma.  Her goal is to obtain a career that will allow her to support her children and pursue a career within the Correctional System of Canada.

The Violet Richardson Award (for young girl volunteers) will be presented to Santera Ogles of Blackfalds, a Grade 10 student at Ecole Secondary Lacombe Composite High School.  Her volunteer effort include the Red Deer Regional Hospital, JS McCormisk School and fundraising projects for Safe Harbour.
