OXFORD — The League of Women Voters of Granville County will recognize its 2020 Women Who Made a Difference award honorees on March 14, and Anita Earls, associate justice of the N.C. Supreme Court, will be the guest speaker.

This year’s award recipients are Helen Corrin Amos and Teresa Baker.

The award “honors women who live, work or volunteer in Granville county and who have enriched our community through their work on voters’ rights or education,” the league said in a statement. “In selecting the honorees, the League looked for individuals who have shared and implemented a vision of making Granville County a better place in which to live and who have mobilized others to work with them to affect positive change in our community.”

This year’s award luncheon follows the league’s 100th birthday on Feb. 14, and marks 100 years since the the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted woman the right to vote.

The Leage of Women Voters is a nonpartisan community group encouraging government participation.

The award luncheon will be 12-2 p.m. at Oxford Methodist Church, 105 W. McClanahan St. Oxford.
