The Zonta Club of Mineral Wells recognized Lovell in March as one of three 2012 honorees at the club’s annual Status of Women Luncheon.
She was one of many community members honored by the Mineral Wells ISD school board as a September Partner in Education, for work on the Back-to-School Fair.
Creighton said receiving the Index Woman of the Year award “told me somebody thought I made a difference in the community.”
“Giving back is one of those things we all need to do to make this community better,” said 2001 Index Woman of the Year and MWISD Director of Public Relations Mary Creighton.
“I was a member of the 4H Club and our motto was ‘To Make the Best Better,’” she recalled. “You don’t go through the world as an average person, you have to step out there to make the best better.”
