The STAR Awards are presented for two different categories. The Alumna STAR Award will be presented for achievements by an outstanding South Suburban College (Thornton Junior College) alumna, and the Community STAR Award will recognize women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in business, community, and/or education.

“How appropriate for our STAR Awards that this year’s theme is Leading the Way through Vision & Action,” said Nancy Burrows, Co-Chair of the Women’s Conference Awards Committee. “We hope women from throughout the community and our college alumnae will nominate their deserving friends and colleagues and consider attending this truly enriching conference.”
