Remarkable Women Winners Across the Country

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – WATE 6 On Your Side wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Leading up to International Women’s Day, WATE 6 On Your Side will highlight four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

Kim Cantrell, founder of Knoxville Pays it Forward, was named East Tennessee’s Woman of the Year and won a trip to New York City to attend The Mel Robbins Show. From the more than 100 local winners, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!

Congratulations to all the finalists.
