ALPENA, Mich. The ZONTA club of Alpena held their annual Woman of the Year banquet Wednesday night.
It was their 55th time honoring a Woman of the Year. The club takes nominations from the community each year.
The woman of the year is someone who goes above and beyond in their volunteer efforts in the community.
Tonight, the club named Kathryn Kunze as the 2021 Woman of the Year.
“There aren’t words,” Kunze said. “It’s overwhelming. I don’t feel I’m the woman of the year I just feel I represent a lot of women who have done so many great things.”
Kunze also said she’s grateful for all of the family and friends that surprised her at the banquet.
