Our city is full of women going quietly about their work in numerous fields achieving remarkable goals. Starting this year, we want to recognize a few of them who, in their own circle or in the wider sphere, are making their mark on Memphis.

On these pages you’ll find a scientist who’s improving the lives of cancer victims; a young journalist who won’t settle for less than the truth; a principal determined to help teachers and students succeed; a communications specialist striving to make people aware of an invaluable civic resource, the Regional Medical Center; and the organizer of the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation, which received the sports world’s highest honor for its philanthropy.

Unsung? Not altogether, but we believe our readers should hear their “song.” Heroines? Yes, because they give their all to a vital cause every day of the world.
We hope to make this an annual feature, so let us know of women whose stories should be told. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy getting to know more about this year’s honorees.
