    Mary Berg, deputy director of Jefferson County Human Services and Pam Nissler, executive director of Jefferson County Public Library, were honored at The West Chamber’s Celebrate Women of Jefferson County breakfast on Thursday, Nov. 17, at Denver Marriott West. The event honors women who have left their mark in Jefferson County both personally and professionally. This year marks the 15th year of the Celebrate Women of Jefferson County event.

    From westchamber.org:
    “Every once in a while you cross paths with a woman whose drive, perseverance and accomplishments far exceed the status quo. This woman inspires and humbles you. You admire her unceasing dedication to the things in life that matter most to her. You aspire to attain the same level of selfless service and generosity. You are proud to call her a friend, a co-worker, a family member, or mentor. Now is your chance to recognize and celebrate with her.”
