Albany - What does it take to be a woman of worth? Three women from the Albany area were recognized for their worthy contributions to the community today by the Southwest Georgia center for women at Darton College.

Lou Johnson was recognized for her role in the background at the Chamber of Commerce and volunteer work. Dr. Joan Darden, Vice President of Academic Affairs was commended for her role in making the nursing program at Darton a success, and Barbara Turner, a 30 year veteran of the Dougherty County school system was awarded for everything she does to help troubled students in the school system.

She says, "I'm honored because of what it represents and I don't think the honor is just being bestowed on me, but it's being bestowed on many, many others who join me in being a part of this community and being able to give back."

People attending the women's forum also learned about reducing stress by remembering this: stressed is only desserts spelled backwards.
