Publisher’s Letter: Counting Blessings and Power Women
December is the most wonderful time of the year, the song goes, and I couldn’t agree more. The Christmas holiday season has always represented one of my favorite times of the year. It means the holidays, of course, a chance to reconnect with family and, most importantly, a chance to count our blessings. This year, I’m doing a lot of that.
But December also means that it’s time to recognize our Power Women, nominated by Arkansas Money & Politics readers. These women are breaking glass ceilings and excelling in fields that once represented the domain of men exclusively. And the Power Women recognized inside represent some of the best our state has to offer including Danyelle Musselman, a former network sports broadcaster and a great example of a strong, confident woman.
Each of the women on this year’s list have shown business acumen and display the grit and determination to succeed that have made our country great. They are CEOs, entrepreneurs, state representatives, health care providers and more, and they represent a wide variety of industry in Arkansas.
Also this month, AMP takes a look at manufacturing and how local officials are promoting specialized skills training to try and offset an aging workforce, efforts to turn the Delta into a true tourist destination and much more
Thank you for reading. From all of us here at AMP, have a great Christmas and holiday season. Share any comments or story ideas with me at [email protected].
