Board of Education member, Amy Eyman, wins 2022 Jane Johnson Women of Vision Award
Congratulations to our Board of Education member, Amy Eyman, who won the 2022 Jane Johnson Women of Vision Award at the Celebrate Women Conference hosted by Ohio University-Lancaster. The Jane Johnsen Women of Vision Award was established in 2013 to honor a member of Ohio University or a Fairfield County community who has made significant contributions to advocacy and awareness of gender issues. In addition to being a board member, Mrs. Eyman is the executive director of the Fairfield County Foundation. She is a passionate advocate for securing resources to assist nonprofit organizations in their efforts to help women. As a result, countless women have been able to finance their education, and many Fairfield County nonprofits have been able to support causes that impact women. Congratulations Amy! We are so proud to have you as a member of the Board and a resident in Fairfield County!
