Jan White was a founding member of VWIB who donated countless hours and energy. She was known for her strong personality – determined and unafraid of hard work mentally or physically. She always spoke up, keeping VWIB from straying from its mission on many occasions, and failure or quitting was not in her vocabulary. Jan passed away in 2004, but lives on in our memories as the catalyst behind the Business Directory. She was a consummate business woman and we believe this award is a fitting tribute to our friend, Jan White
The recipient of this award is selected based on her contributions to VWIB and the Business Community. These contributions may be current or former board participation, volunteering for committees, donations or sponsorships to VWIB events, overall support and vocal advocacy of our organization, and exemplary attendance.
