Now more than any other time, we are finally recognizing the tremendous contribution women make every day, personally, professionally and in the community. In honor of Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate ALL WOMEN! Join 93.7 WSTW, Jammin’ 96.9, and WDEL 1150AM/101.7FM for Celebrating Women.

Operations Director at Project C.U.R.E., a typical HOUR might see Kathy orienting volunteers, planning delivery of donated supplies, and rolling up her sleeves to unload a truck. When not in West Grove, PA, Kathy could be in Africa assessing facilities to receive future shipments. For making the mission of Project C.U.R.E. a reality, I nominate Kathy Hrenko, multitasker extraordinaire!
The past 11 years of Sherry’s life have been dedicated to rescuing, fostering and helping to adopt out dogs, puppies, cats and kittens. She spends a lot of time taking vibrant pics of shelter animals to help catch adopters eye. Our house has also become a safe haven for over 250 foster dogs and cats, some who had come from some of the worst abuse cases imaginable. A lot of these animals had serious medical problems and needed a lot of love; my mom was always the first one to volunteer to take them.
Katie’s unique experience brings a fresh approach to businesses starving for effective, yet cost-attainable ad campaigns with Viamark Advertising. As an Account Executive for Philadelphia’s KYW Newsradio, and WSPK in Poughkeepsie, NY, along with her General Sales Manager position at 99.5 WJBR in Wilmington, Katie has gained a wide spectrum of industry knowledge, particularly on the local and regional front. Her insider perspective and personal relationships inherently gives Katie’s clients more bang for their media buck.
