Oct. 14, 2003 – The St. John Business and Professional Women chapter will honor three island residents, Enid Hendricks, Julien Harley and Miles Stair, at its annual BPW Week breakfast, to be held Oct. 25 at the Westin Resort.
Erica McDonald, BPW chair, said Hendricks is being recognized because she took a talent and turned it into a business. Hendricks owns a catering company, and "her love of cooking drove her to it," McDonald said.
Harley, St. John administrator, is being honored as a long-time supporter of BPW. "He's never said no to BPW," McDonald said.
Stair, the president of Holiday Homes real estate, is active within several St. John community organizations. He is being recognized as a mainland transplant who "made his way in the community and found a way to give back," she said.
McDonald said all three honorees exemplify or support BPW's goal to achieve equality for all women through advocacy, education and information.
The St. John BPW group also will hold a financial planning seminar during BPW week, at 6 p.m. on Oct. 23 at Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center. Shelley Moorehead of Seslia Securities will speak.
The Oct. 25 breakfast is to begin at 9 a.m. For tickets, which are $30, or more information, call McDonald at 693-8900 or 771-6197.
