We’re Dedicating The Show To The “Women of Worcester”
You can achieve whatever you put your mind to. So long, as you put in the work and you aren’t afraid to ask for help when you need it. That mindset holds true for our first “Woman of Worcester”, Jessica Collins, Detective Corporal with the Berlin Police Department. A title she’s earned with hard work, dedication, and sacrifice, over and over again. But, she says, she’s willing to do it all because serving the public is in her blood. Katie’s in Berlin to learn more.
There’s so much more than goes into being an educator. Does the beginning of a career in education start when you go to college and get a degree? For some, it does. But then, there are those who use their backgrounds as a way to connect with students. That’s the case for our next “Woman of Worcester”, Dr. Kimberly Purvis, Principal of Snow Hill High School. In order to do her job, she reaches way back to when she was a student. Lisa connected with her to learn more.
It’s quite an understatement to say that times have changed since I went to school. Really, times have changed since just last year. These days, educators have to be on their toes to identify students who may be struggling to deal with change or have other issues going on outside of the classroom. Our next “Woman of Worcester” is Lauren Williams, she’s the point guard, if you will, for teachers and staff to recognize when a student may be struggling with more than just math and science.
From a detective, to a principal, to a children’s mental health advocate, we have already met some inspiring women today. But, what about those women who helped shape Worcester County? Well, you can learn all about those fearless females, who made Ocean City wonderful, at the Ocean City Life-Saving Museum.
57 years ago, a group of artists came together to form the Ocean City Art League. The Art League provides a place for artists to show their work off in Ocean City. This was a dream for Executive Director, Rina Thaler. A dream that began – as many do – with a summer-time trip to the beach. Lisa’s in Ocean City to find out more.
110 years of tasty taffy. Dolle’s Candyland is an Ocean City staple, currently in its’ fourth generation. We meet the final “Woman of Worcester”, Anna Dolle Bushnell, one-half of the duo currently handling the Dolle’s operation. Katie sat down with her to chat about the business she’s been involved in, basically, since birth!
