SIUE grad earns business award for 'responsiveness,' other efforts
The Highland chapter of the Illinois Federation of Business Women (IFBW) has named Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) alumna Lisa Peck its 2017 “Woman of Achievement,” according to the school’s website.
Peck, an assistant city manager in Highland, earned a bachelor's in political science and a master's in public administration from SIUE.
“In her nearly four years in Highland, Lisa has made a definite impact on her home town,” her nomination read, according to Belleville News-Democrat. “She is very responsive to the needs of the community and has accomplished much. Her outstanding work ethic, dedication and ability to work with others for the betterment of the community is apparent in all that she does. Lisa Peck is definitely a ‘Woman of Achievement.’”
Peck received her award on Oct. 9 at the annual IFBW Award and Evening at Popeye’s Chophouse in St. Rose, where two women were recognized for their outstanding work in the community.
Highland Police Officer Heather Kunz won the “Women Mean Business” award.
“As women helping women, we believe in recognizing our own members for their achievements, and recognizing outstanding local business women for their achievements, and who support our mission and provide community leadership,” Highland IFBW President Jennifer Libbra said.
