Sylvia Acosta, Azuri Gonzalez, Tasha Hopper, Kristina Mena, Keri Moe and Andrea Ramirez were recognized at El Paso Inc.’s 11th Women of Impact Ceremony at El Paso Country Club.

“It is an amazing group of women. Sixty-seven women to date have been recognized for outstanding work, forever impacting El Paso,” El Paso Inc. Publisher Secret Wherrett said.

The award was launched in 2010 to celebrate success in the community. Honorees are selected by a panel of past honorees.

“The Women of Impact awards lift the visibility of women leaders and create a stronger community for us all,” honoree Keri Moe said in her remarks.
