Ovation spotlights women whose mission, among other things, is women
The Iowa Women’s Foundation honored this year’s Fort Dodge area Ovation award honorees Wednesday evening during a presentation at Olde Boston’s Restaurant & Pub in downtown Fort Dodge.
Each honoree was introduced by one of the individuals who had made their nomination.
Jane Curtis, editor of The Messenger, was introduced by the newspaper’s publisher, Terry Christensen.
“We were going to surprise her,” he said. “But we work in a newspaper.”
He credits Curtis with doing an exceptional job in a tough environment.
“In today’s world,” he said, “it’s a large responsibility.”
