Sister Thomas Welder Named 2014 Woman of Honor

Sister Thomas Welder, and two other deserving women, Meghan Wilkinson and Paula Klein, were surprised with top honors from Center for Technology & Business (CTB) at their third annual Women’s Business Summit luncheon in October.

In honor of National Women’s Small Business Month, the event brought together women from across the state for a unique networking and professional development opportunity designed to strengthen the state of women owned businesses in North Dakota.

As she applauded the accomplishments of others, Sister Thomas Welder did not expect her name to follow as she was named the 2014 CTB Woman of Honor, which brought the crowd to their feet.

Sister Thomas was recognized as “a woman who lives, serves and leads by example. She has served on numerous boards and has been actively involved in professional organizations and religious affiliations on both a state and national level. Her personal achievements, character and leadership have been an inspiration to countless individuals, students, entrepreneurs, and business and state leaders.”

The women are chosen in recognition of their spirit of mentorship leadership, strength, wisdom and foresight. “CTB is honored to be able to recognize these amazing women and to celebrate not only their professional accomplishments but their personal desires to give back and to help other women grow. We hope that by sharing their stories we’re providing inspiration for other women to know that they have it in them to do great things and to make a difference in the lives of others,” explains CTB Executive Director, Deb Eslinger.
