Virginia’s Remarkable Women for 2021

Remarkable Women

The time has come to recognize WFXR News’ Remarkable Women who live in our region.

Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide initiative from WFXR News’ parent company, Nexstar Media to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the overall quality of life we all enjoy in southwest and central Virginia.

WFXR News celebrates local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women not just one day or one month. It’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

In order to celebrate these women properly, we want to highlight and recognize their accomplishments.

WFXR News has selected four Remarkable Women who will be highlighted each week.
