WOWK wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Throughout the month of March, WOWK has highlighted four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

From our finalists, we’re proud to announce Monica Mason has been named WOWK’s regional “Nexstar Remarkable Woman of the Year” for 2022. From the more than 100 local winners nationwide, one woman will be selected and named the “Nexstar Remarkable Woman of the Year”.
