Jill Tietjen is an historian and noted expert in women’s history
MACON Georgia Women of Achievement today announced that Jill Tietjen, will provide the keynote address at the 24th Annual Induction Ceremony to be held Thursday, March 5, 2015 at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. Jill Tietjen is a noted historian and author of “Her Story: A Timeline of the Women who Changed America.”
This year, GWA is proud to induct Allie Carroll Hart (Madison), Frances Freeborn Pauley (Decatur), and Nell Kendall Hodgson Woodruff (Athens). To be considered in the selection process, nominees must be deceased for ten or more years, they must be native to, or clearly identified with the state of Georgia, and must have made exceptional and enduring contributions in their field of endeavor, thus serving as an inspiration to future generations. A Board of Selections consisting of scholars and experts from throughout the state reviews nominations.
Each honoree will be featured in a short tribute film, which chronicles her life and achievements. These films, courtesy of GWA’s partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting, bring the stories of these extraordinary women to life.
Founded in 1992, Georgia Women of Achievement’s purpose is to honor women in Georgia history who have made outstanding contributions to the State of Georgia and who serve as an inspiration to present day Georgians.
Another way GWA makes it possible to honor extraordinary women is through the recognition of Personal Women of Achievement. This distinction is a way for anyone to give tribute to a woman, living or deceased, who has impacted their life. The endeavors of Georgia Women of Achievement are made possible through donations and sponsors.
