Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) — Some of the most influential and impactful women and businesses in the Cass-Clay community are getting some well deserved recognition.

Dana and I were proud to host tonight’s 40th Annual Women of the Year, put on by the YWCA. We met 30 nominees whose lives, talents and passions shape the community.

One of this year’s winners, for the lifetime achievement award, was Dr. Terrie Manno.

She’s a professor of piano at MSUM.
