Stacy Sproat-Beck, Sarah Tochiki and JoAnn Yukimura joined the growing list of women leaders honored over the past 11 years by the YWCA of Kauai through its Na Wahine Alaka‘i O Kaua‘i annual awards event Friday at the Kauai Marriott Resort &Beach Club on Kalapaki Beach.

“These diverse women have touched the community with their own unique style,” said Renae Hamilton-Cambeilh, YWCA executive director. “Yet they share a common thread in their determination to making a positive difference for Kauai.”

In addition to the recognitions, the YWCA of Kauai presented its scholarships — the YWCA Board of Director’s scholarship being awarded to Julie Kauakahi, the Grace Fermin Dixon Scholarship presented to Leslie Uri, and the Pay It Forward awards being made to Mei-Ling Keopuhiwa, Katie Cook, Madeline Hoesel and Kaisah Vercelli.
