Diane Alexander among those honored for Career Women’s Week

May 7, 2014

DIANE ALEXANDER

Each year, five women are chosen by the Punxsutawney Career Women’s Club for Career Women’s Week. The criteria used for choosing these women are based not only on their professional efforts, but also on the contributions they’ve made to community and family.

The club was founded in 1930, originally known as Punxsutawney Business & Professional Women’s Club. On Sept. 8, 1998, the club name was changed and incorporated as a non-profit organization under the name of Punxsutawney Career Women’s Club, with objectives to promote growth and respect of women in the workplace; improve self-esteem in all careers; educate women; and support community projects. This article is Part III in a five-part series.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — This year, the Pittsburgh Pirates are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the “We Are Family” team of 1979; however, there’s another team that considers themselves a family too.

The Punxsutawney Career Women’s Club chose Diane Alexander, who is a pharmacy technician at Hometown Pharmacy located in the Groundhog Plaza in Punxsutawney, as one of the representatives for Career Women’s Week. The representatives make up a team that’s making a difference in the community.

Alexander said that she considers her fellow employees at Hometown
Pharmacy to be a family.

She grew up in Anita as Diane Foster and lived there until she was in her early teens, when her family moved to town, and she has lived here in town ever since.

Read all about Alexander in Thursday's print edition of The Spirit.
