The 2018 Woman of the Year award was presented to Jo Ann Staulcup on Tuesday night at the Chamber Extravaganza. Staulcup was chosen for the award thanks to her level of commitment to our community.
During the event, it was noted that Staulcup has served on many boards in Big Spring over the past 30 years. Her longest tenure is as a Friend of the Library, where she served as President for 27 years.
She has been involved with over 15 organizations, served on City Council, and even held the seat of Mayor Pro-Tem for 3 years. Staulcup has also served on the boards for Keep Big Spring Beautiful, Festival of Lights, Hangar 25 Air Museum, and had served as Vice President for the Downtown Revitalization Association.
When asked how she felt to be named the 2018 Woman of the Year, Staulcup stated that it was an honor and she was so shocked that she couldn’t believe it.
