Remarkable Women in Leadership award winners

Five remarkable CNY community activists will be honored at the Annual CBS 5 Women In Leadership Awards Luncheon on Thursday May 12 at Justin TMs Tuscan Grill in East Syracuse. This year TMs award winners are dynamic in their backgrounds, and accomplished in their careers. I have had the pleasure of meeting all five of our winners, and interviewing them for a special feature report that will air during CBS5 News at 5:00pm during the week of the luncheon (5/9-5/13). We will also show the spots during the luncheon as a way of introducing these incredible women.
