Melissa Fedigan among those honored for Career Women’s Week

May 6, 2014

Melissa Fedigan

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 II in a five-part series.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — When Melissa Fedigan was informed, by the Career Woman’s Club in Punxsutawney, that she had been chosen as one of the representatives for Career Women’s Week, she said she was “both flattered and humbled.”

Born and raised in Punxsutawney, Fedigan is a graduate of the Punxsutawney Area High School.

After graduation, she attended Penn State, where she started out in pre-med; however, she decided to follow her true calling, which was teaching.
