Thank you to all who helped us honor the 2018 South Bay Women of the Year:

For nearly two decades Switzer Learning Center has honored women who have made significant contributions to the South Bay through their work in the community.

This year is no exception, as the Center will once again honor four incredibly dedicated, hard working, innovative and generous women who have left indelible marks in the South Bay.

These women are shining stars! Women who have made a difference in our community!

We honor women who have made a significant contribution to the South Bay through their work in the community in areas such as education, business, healthcare, innovation, leadership, services to at-risk youth, special needs children and young adults, volunteerism and other fields.
