Manatee Inducts a New Class for 2018

In April, the WRC’s Founders’ Legacy Luncheon returned to IMG Academy Golf Club where supporters gathered to celebrate the induction of this year’s Wonder Women of Manatee. The honorees included Bradenton Police Chief, Melanie Bevan, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Diana Greene, and Dr. Teresa Rawe, medical director of emergency medicine at Manatee Memorial Hospital.

WRC Wonder Women are female leaders within our community who have made outstanding contributions in volunteer and/or professional activities in the areas of Business, Community Leadership, Education, Healthcare, Entrepreneurship, or Lifetime Achievement.

Inaugural MyWRC Magazine cover girl, Dylan Howell, and fellow WRC supporter, Kelly Davis Strausbaugh shared the meaning behind inspirational message boards signed by luncheon attendees. “Our intention in the boards was to create something tangible so that the clients could see the support from community,” Strausbaugh said. The message boards will be hung in the classroom of the Manatee Center where clients will see them daily.  

WRC’s Venice Wonder Women will be recognized on Friday, November 2, 2018 at Plantation Golf & Country Club.
