The Lucy Gibson Notable Woman Award

KAWE named the Notable Woman award after one of its own, Lucy Webb Gibson, to honor her legacy, grace and courage. Lucy had proposed and helped initiate the award.

Do you know a local, outstanding woman who has affected the strategic direction of an organization, contributed to her community, and maintained a life balance in a profession, business, charity, creative art, or sport? KAWE recognizes such a woman annually by selecting from a list of nominees. Nominees must be from the greater Knoxville area. Click the Nomination Form button to submit the name of your own “notable woman.” KAWE membership recognizes the winning applicant at a luncheon in early fall. ​
