DAYTON, OH – The West Chester – Liberty Chamber Alliance is honoring 10 deserving women from the community and surrounding areas, including local resident, Sue Hill.
The Women of Excellence Awards honor 10 deserving women, including two young adults age 16-24 from the community and surrounding areas.
Honorees are selected based on their community service through their current careers or volunteer work. These women have enhanced business, education, culture, philanthropy, and provided outstanding service to the surrounding region.
Hill and the other nominees will be honored at a banquet to be held on Friday, November 20, 2015, at the Cincinnati Marriott North at Union Centre in West Chester.
A long-time resident of Centerville, Hill began her service to the community as her four children became involved with Girl and Boy Scouts.
“While my girls were in Scouts, I served what was then the Buckeye Trails Council as area chairwoman, and held the position of Secretary on the Board of Trustees for 13 years,” Hill said.
For several years, Hill acted as facilitator between Normandy Church and community scouting troops that used the church’s facilities. In addition, she helped set up and coordinate a support group for widows that is still going strong after 23 years.
Hill is perhaps best known for her 27 years as a preschool teacher at the parent-owned Children’s Cooperative Preschool (CCP) that was located at Normandy Church.
When CCP closed its doors in 2005, Hill brought donations from her classroom to local nonprofit Hannah’s Treasure Chest and became involved in volunteering. She has been a strong supporter and full-time volunteer with the organization since that time.
“I knew when I left the preschool that I wanted to continue doing things to help children,” Hill said. “I have found that in the work I do with Hannah’s Treasure Chest.”
