For our 10th anniversary event, we honored Mrs, Virginia Whitfield, a woman who has positively impacted the River Region for many years. Virginia has been an English teacher, a public relations executive, a promoter of Alabama’s best food products, a benefactor of Children’s Hospital, and local youth. A director on numerous boards, she has played an active part in empowering and promoting women, and in 2010 was the first woman chosen as Citizen of the Year by River Region Living. We were delighted to add our approbation this evening.
