Iris Award Honorees: 1985-Present
Wanting to recognize women of achievement in Southwest Washington who exemplified leadership, philanthropy and community service was the inspiration for what is today the Iris Awards. The Iris Awards were established in 2012. From 1985 through 2010, award recipients were honored as "Women of Achievement." For 37 years, the southwest Washington community has nominated outstanding women for recognition.
The Iris Award was held to commemorate National Women’s History Month, to recognize International Women’s Day, and to honor volunteer efforts and community leadership of women in Clark County.
