Prologue.png

YWCA's 35th Annual Women of Achievement Awards took place last week and Rachel Lewis Hilburn was recognized as the winner of the 2021 Business Award. 

The Women of Achievement Awards is the YWCA Lower Cape Fear's signature fundraiser to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women and young leaders in our community. 

In his introduction of Rachel, Station Manager Kurt Wilson said, "Her friends and colleagues at WHQR are proud of her accomplishments. Rachel's been a key figure in Wilmington to provide ongoing programs that highlight the reality of Wilmington's racially divisive history and shows us the impact of this history on our lives today."

When asked what being a Woman of Achievement meant to her, Rachel replied, "Being a Woman of Achievement means that there are people in this community who care about breaking down artificial barriers that exist between us...It means that people care more about coming together than about building up divisions."
