The St. Louis Women of Achievement celebrated its 65th year of honoring women in the metro area for their volunteer efforts. This event was held Jan. 21 at Neiman Marcus' Mariposa Garden room. Founded in 1955, the St. Louis Women of Achievement Award is the oldest ongoing program in St. Louis with the sole mission being to honor and recognize the volunteer service and volunteer leadership of women. It serves both as a "thank you" to its recipients and as an inspiration to others.
