MARIETTA - The YWCA of Northwest Georgia named Harrison High School social worker Penny Warren, wife of Sheriff Neil Warren, its Woman of the Year on Friday evening during its 26th Annual Tribute to Women of Achievement celebration. "I think Penny Warren is one of the most wonderful women in the county, and I think that it's well deserved," Lee said. Jeri Barr, CEO of the Center for Family Resources, said it was Warren who got her involved in community service. Born in the midwestern town of Brazil, Ind., Warren earned degrees in social work at Indiana University, before moving to Georgia in 1976, where she had relatives in Kennesaw. I want to congratulate Penny Warren on this outstanding achievement. Out of all the women who were named, she is the most deserved of the award in my opinion. I have known Penny professionally through her association with Cobb Faith Partnership, and she is very supportive of CFP and its role in linking local faith-based initiatives with community needs. She is truly a class act! Create an Account
