Carol Hibbs honored in 2021 Ovation

The Iowa Women’s Foundation has unveiled the 8th edition of Ovation: A Tribute to Iowa Women and Girls. The book features tributes to a diverse group of 132 amazing women who have made an impact on their families, their friends, their colleagues and their communities. These women are wonderful examples of mentors, advocates and role models sharing their time, talents and resources to make our communities the very best they can be. They inspire others to reach their goals and enjoy their dreams. They are a strong, thoughtful, driven, tireless and generous group. These women are Iowa.

Carol Hibbs, CEO of the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA, was honored in the 2021 Ovation book during a Facebook Live Unveiling Reception. As her Ovation tribute reads, “Carol doesn’t just serve the community; she is part of the community. She has been generous with her time and talent outside of the Y, serving on many boards and providing leadership to other organizations.” Congratulations to Carol as she continues to motivate, encourage and impact the people she touches every day.

To view the Unveilings held throughout the week of June 14th, visit the Iowa Women’s Foundation Facebook page at:   https://www.facebook.com/IowaWomensFoundation  Carol is featured in the Wednesday, June 16th program.
