They will be honored on Oct. 25 at the academy’s 20th annual celebration and induction, presented by YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee and First Tennessee.

The academy was launched locally in 1992 by the YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. It honors women who, through excellence and leadership in their chosen fields, serve as role models for other women. This year’s recipients join 111 other women who hold this distinctive honor.
