The Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Services has named Dr. Lillian Schumacher, president of Tiffin University, the recipient of the 2016 Women’s Career Excellence Award.

“Dr. Schumacher demonstrates by example that women can be very successful in their career, while showing their softer side as a devoted wife and mother,” the person who nominated Schumacher said. “She is driven not only by her personal success, but by the success of those around her.”

The award is given to an individual who endeavors to achieve the highest echelons of professional success. These are women who shine in their professional field, who are leaders that inspire others to follow. Additionally, they have dedicated time and effort in their communities in a substantial manner.

To win, recipients must “demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their business or profession; provide valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community; assist women in reaching their full leadership potential,” according to criteria by which nominees are judged.
