Words like “extraordinary” are often overused, thrown about like so much empty filler lacking in meaning or substance, never capturing the actual depth of one’s character.

Not so with the 15 Monadnock Region women honored Thursday evening at The Sentinel’s fifth annual Extraordinary Women celebration.

The passions that drive these women to excel are varied. They include health care, after-school activities for kids, the YMCA, farming, working with children with disabilities, cats, dogs, banking, dance and theater, to name just a few. The list could be increased ad infinitum.

The one thing they have in common is humility, according to the event’s host, Sentinel Executive Editor Paul Miller.

“I was reflecting on the short history of this occasion in advance of today, and if anything stands out, it is this — the women we’ve gotten to know and profile, including the 15 here today, are among the most humble, modest, spotlight-shy individuals you’ll ever meet,” Miller said as he welcomed the 220 people packed into the Best Western Plus Keene Hotel for Thursday’s celebration.
