3rd Annual Michelle Obama Awards
March 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Celebrate the 2021 Michelle Obama Award recipients in honor of Women’s History Month. Now in its third year, this award is designed to recognize women in our county who embody former First Lady Michelle Obama’s spirit. Compassionate, graceful, and intelligent are some of the words many have used to describe Mrs. Obama. The women we honor this year possess these same characteristics. Each of them is doing incredible work in our communities in their own way.The theme for this year’s awards – “Her Story Is Our History”, speaks to the importance of recognizing the critical impact women have in our lives at all levels. In the words of Michelle Obama, “When women and girls rise, their communities and their countries rise with them.”
Hosted by the Caucus of African American Leaders (CAAL) in partnership with the Office of the County Executive, this year’s program will honor ten women who have had a meaningful impact in Anne Arundel County, including Dr. Carol Benson, Executive Director of the Four Rivers Heritage Area!
