Prominent women in Prince George’s County gathered Thursday for the 34th Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon hosted by County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.

This year’s theme highlighted women who demonstrate “ dedication, commitment and pride in Prince George’s County,” similar to the national theme Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence, which is centered around women who have made strides to promote the use of nonviolence in society.

For the first time ever, Alsobrooks presented the "The Prince George's Pride Award" to women in the county who have demonstrated civic pride in their work and in their local community. 

The Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarship Award was presented to a graduating senior in the county who demonstrates both academic and civic excellence.

The annual luncheon is open to influential women and men working in field such as the arts, business, the government and education.
