KINGMAN – The steering committee of Kingman Women Making History has made the “very difficult decision” to cancel the March event.

“We are choosing to be respectful of the public and the health and safety of all participants and guests,” organizers wrote. “Normally this event brings in excess of 200 people. We feel a deep responsibility to past winners and future recipients to be respectful of their well-being.”

Organizers wrote in a news release that they have every intention of holding the event in 2022. This year, however, “any and all women of Kingman shall be honored for their integrity, strength and character.”

“We reflect upon the past year knowing the great physical and mental efforts required by many,” organizers continued. “We look forward to a proclamation by Mayor Jen Miles in the month of February that will honor the women of Kingman, proclaiming March as Women Making History Month.”
