STACIE SALINAS

FEATURED MEMBER

Stacie Salinas is WGTEN’s March Woman Leading By Example!

Gail Rice has presented Stacie Salinas with the Woman Leading by Example Award.
“I have not known this professional very long, as we are both new to the American Business Women’s Association, WGTEN chapter, but I had the opportunity to meet her, visit with her, and have fun with her at the Christmas gathering in December. It was obvious to me when I met her that she is ambitious and has a tremendous amount of drive. She told me about her desire to grow her career professionally in the school system. I’m excited that I’ll have the chance to network and collaborate with her in the future, and together we can help lift each other up in all our endeavors.
Tonight, I am recognizing Stacie Salinas this month for her ambition, drive, leadership, and for challenging herself. Stacie is a teacher at West HS. I’m sure being a teacher today is extra challenging, because they are having to teach in new ways to accommodate distance learning during this pandemic. Stacie is married, has two young children, earned two Master’s degrees, and is working full time. It takes grit to run a household with your husband, nurture your children, work full time, and obtain a Master’s degree. Oh wait, not just one Master’s degree it was TWO. My hat is off to Stacie, she is definitely a Woman Leading by Example!
Let’s all congratulate Stacie on a job well done!”
