Rotary District Governor Una Martone Named Business Woman of the Year

It’s certainly not a headline that Paul Harris and his contemporaries would have ever imagined. But it’s true. The Business Woman of the Year award was presented to District Governor Una Martone during the 24th Annual Business Women’s Forum on May 23 at Messiah College’s new state-of-the-art High Center.

The award was presented by the Carlisle Area Chamber, Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC, and West Shore Chamber to honor one inspirational woman from our region based on the criteria of professional leadership, community leadership, and personal leadership.

In her acceptance remarks, Una acknowledged fellow Rotarian, Karen Snider, who passed away last year. Karen challenged Una to extend her leadership capacity within Rotary and is the person who nominated her for the role of District Governor. Una then encouraged other women, in the over 200-person audience, to accept leadership roles when they are presented. She went on to say: “If my experience can set an example for any other woman to believe in herself and LEAD, then I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! My purpose has always been to support those around me in being the best they can possibly be. It applies to my work at Leadership Harrisburg Area; my service in Rotary District 7390; and in every aspect of my personal life.”

Past Business Woman of the Year honorees are:
2017 Dr. Karen Scolforo, Castleton University
2016 Patricia Husic, Centric Bank
2015 Lisa Stokes, BRP Entertainment
2014 Sr. Romaine Niemeyer, Holy Spirit Hospital
2013 Donna Schankweiler, Journal Multimedia
2012 Debra Pierson, Pierson Computing Connection

Hello everyone,

First, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done or are doing for our organization. Just as our collective humanitarian efforts accomplish more than any of us could individually, it is the collective effort of all of you that allows our organization to operate year in and year out. We appreciate you. 

Some of you receiving this are long time friends and acquaintances in Rotary. Some are relatively new. Some of you we have not yet had the privilege of working with. Regardless, we need each of you to consider the following. September 20-22, 2018, we will be holding the first ever Zone 24/32 Conference. Oh wait you say, we've had Rotary Institutes for years. Right you are. So what's the difference? This event is open to ALL Rotarians. Past Officers, incoming officers, current officers, AG's, district Rotarians, club Rotarians. Everyone!

So, click here and see what the program looks like. Register and join us in Montreal. Most importantly - encourage others to join you!!
