Sheryce Hearns, director of diversity, equity, and inclusion, started the DWC to cultivate a supportive environment for female construction professionals in the firm. The DWC Awards ceremony is an extension of this initiative as it celebrates and thanks ladies at Dellbrook|JKS.

“When women in construction see other ladies succeeding and receiving worthwhile recognition, it makes it easier for them to envision themselves doing the same, which is exactly what we hope to do with this annual event,” explains Hearns, who also extends “a heartfelt thank you to this year’s award recipients for their accomplishments, year long assistance, and role-model behavior.”

Christine Gillis, Anna Losordo, and Joanie Martin received the Helping Hand Award; Tatianna Auguste and Kristin Searles received the Super Star Award; Rachel Mager received the Show Up & Show Out Award; and Kara Champagne received the People’s Choice Award.
