2011 TWIN Honoree Spotlight

12 Aug

The YWCA’s Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) event honors women who have made significant contributions to their fields, and recognizes those organizations that support such achievements. 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of TWIN. Leading up to this year’s September 15th event, we will highlight each of our 25 incredible TWIN Honorees. If you would like more information about the TWIN event, or would like to reserve a ticket, please visit www.ywcaofasheville.org.

Anita Metcalf, A-B Tech Foundation

Through perseverance, Anita has empowered hundreds of students facing personal struggles and financial difficulties to achieve their dream of an education. In her ten years of service to the college, she drastically increased the Foundation’s revenues and increased the number of scholarships from six to two hundred twenty-seven. As a result of growing the Foundation, Anita has enabled students to obtain the knowledge and skills which will improve their earning potential for the rest of their lives. The independence these students gain, in turn, develops confidence, a sense of accomplishment, and begins to open up a whole new world of possibilities where once there was no hope. Those who have worked with Anita know she works with unparalleled dedication, treating everyone with kindness, sincerity and compassion.
