BPW hosts reception for senior girls

The local Business and Professional Women held its first reception on Tuesday to honor senior girls in Lawrence County.

The event was held at the old Van Atkins building in Downtown Walnut Ridge for Lawrence County senior girls interested in BPW.

President Peggy Williams gave a welcome speech, followed by a skit performed by Jeannie Abbott, Diana Shelton and Williams. The skit focused on women in the professional world and how not to act towards others.

Following the skit, BPW members and seniors recited the organization's Collect and members introduced themselves and provided encouraging words to the seniors.

Scholarships were also presented during the event. Recipients were: Rachel Land of Hoxie and Holley Yates of Walnut Ridge. Both received a $500 scholarship.

The reception ended with the organization's emblem benediction. The women plan to make the reception an annual event.
