With clean drinking water, economic growth is encouraged, as well as the further development of the education system.

Jones plans to share her story, seeing that she is an incredible example of a strong, smart and bold woman.

Four other local strong, smart and bold women, Michelle Apodaca from Deckers Brands, Jennifer Freed and Rendy Freeman, co-founders of AHA, and Donna Jordan, are also being honored at the event.
