Creating a Sense of Community Throughout The Appalachian Highlands

2019 Power Woman: The Pink Ladies

Our Pink Ladies values reflect who we are and what we stand for.

Community Commitment
We develop relationships that make a positive

difference in the lives of children and animals

in the communities that we serve.

We work together to meet the needs of
children and animal organizations in our communities…
no matter how big or small.

Good Citizenship
We are good citizens in the communities in
which we live and work.

We uphold the highest standards

of integrity in all of our actions.

We value and respect our Pink Ladies. We encourage
their development by recognizing their performance.
The same respect is shared with the members
of the organizations that we volunteer with.

A Will To Succeed
We all share the will to succeed by leaving the
world in better shape than how we found it. We
are all winners. It is a part of our culture.

Personal Accountability
We are personally accountable

for delivering on our commitments.

The Pink Ladies believe that our compassion

for children and animals should be shared. It takes
a village to help a community. Awareness is the
first step in making a difference.

Servant Leadership

We believe that Servant Leadership is the best form
of leadership. The higher you are in an organization, the more
you are expected to serve others. This vision was shared with
us while working at Friendship and we will continue to practice
Servant Leadership while serving as Pink Ladies.

Little things are taken for granted so often and leveling the playing field for someone isn’t something to be taken lightly. We’re blessed and we should do our best to share that as much as possible!” she explains of her passion for being a Pink Lady.
