Barbara Webb has been recognized by the Palmetto Center for Women for her outstanding achievements as a volunteer in South Carolina.
The award was presented this week during the Palmetto Center for Women Honors event in Columbia. Webb was one of 37 women honored as community leaders and role models in categories covering volunteerism, agriculture, arts, corporate, education, entrepreneurs, government and law enforcement, health and wellness, hospitality, media and communications, and inspiring young women.
“Always remember that being an effective volunteer is more than just giving your time or your dollars,” Webb said. “It’s genuinely giving your heart to that person, organization or event.”
The awards are distinguished honors presented to women whose outstanding achievements mark them as leaders and role models in business and the community. The awards program has recognized more than 700 women since it began in 1980.
It’s only the latest honor bestowed on Webb, a compliance consultant at Colonial Life. Last year she was named the company’s Volunteer of the Year for her work with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and other organizations. More recently, she was selected for a three-year term on the Clemson Alumni Association board of directors.
