Wheeler earns annual honor from Lake County newspaper
The Lake County Journal has named Rep. Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) one of seven Women of Distinction at a recent awards ceremony, according to Wheeler’s website.
As part of its annual awards, the Journal chose Wheeler and her fellow honorees “as representative role models and leaders in their respective fields and communities,” according to a press release. All of the winners are being mentioned in the October issue and individually profiled in the coming months.
“I want to thank the Women of Distinction sponsors and the Lake County Journal for this recognition,” Wheeler said in the press release. “There are so many women doing wonderful work to serve and improve our communities and being counted among them is a great honor.”
The awards luncheon was held Oct. 17 at the Mundelein/Libertyville DoubleTree Hotel.
