Carolyn Peterson receives BPW award

  The Woodinville Business and Professional Women (BPW) chapter honors women of our community by presenting The Helen Thayer Woman of Achievement Award which honors a woman who has demonstrated a commitment to her professional career, support of other women seeking to advance in their careers, work to inspire young people; and/or by performing notable community service.
   This year's recipient is Carolyn Peterson.
   She has been a member of the Woodinville BPW chapter since 1992 and has been active serving as newsletter editor, public relations chair, served three times as secretary and has been part of the chapter's phone tree for many years.
   Peterson is affiliated with RE/MAX Eastside Brokers and makes a direct contribution of $250 to the local chapter's Scholarship Fund for each BPW-related real estate sale. To date, her contributions exceed $2,000.
   She and her husband enjoy skiing, hiking, tennis, aerobics, yoga and roller blading. Currently she is also a board member of the Cottage Gardeners Garden Club in Woodinville.
