2011 Woman Of The Year

Regina Lawry has been chosen to be the Beta Sigma Phi Woman of the Year for 2011. She and her husband, Richard moved from Colorado to Mena in 1981. They have two grown children and three beautiful granddaughters.

Regina has been active in Beta Sigma Phi since 1996, serving as President of the Preceptor Alpha Beta chapter for two years. She has owned her own successful business, The Golden Thimble, and for the past ten years has been the manager of the USEM Federal Credit Union.

Chairperson and Autumn

In 2007 Regina’s concern for family and friends who have had cancer led her to become involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Polk County. Since 2008 she has been the chairman of the event. In the five years since 2007 the Polk County Relay For Life has raised more than $245,000.00 in the fight against cancer. Regina has been given the Relay For Life Voluntarism Leadership Award by the American Cancer Society.

In 2009 Regina was recognized for outstanding volunteer service to the people of Mena by the Chamber of Commerce. She was also honored as the 2009 Rotary Club Volunteer of the Year, and received a letter of Volunteer Recognition from Governor Mike Beebe.

Beta Sigma Phi presented Regina with a check in the amount of 500.00 for Relay For Life. This year's Relay For Life event will be held in Janssen Park on Friday, May 20th, starting at 6:00 P.M. Beta Sigma Phi is proud to honor Regina for her hard work by naming her the Beta Sigma Phi Woman of the Year for 2011.
