62nd Annual Woman/Mother of the Year Coronation

The State Office and State WIN Committee are excited to inform you about the upcoming WIN Brunch and 62nd Annual Woman/Mother of the Year Coronation scheduled for Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 10 am. This year's coronation theme is "Women Who Believe in Freedom and Justice Shall Not Rest." The Coronation will be held in Lee County at the First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, located at 240 Fields Drive, in Sanford, North Carolina where the Pastor is Rev. Dr. Thomas E. Smith, Sr. Our featured speaker is former Ohio State Senator, Ms. Nina Turner.

The WIN Brunch and Coronation honors women from across the state for their service to the NAACP and for their contributions in their communities. This annual celebration started in 1955 as a fundraiser to supplement Local, State, and National Budgets (See History and General Rules attached). All monies raised in this annual fundraiser supports the work of the Association as we continue to fight for Civil Rights, Equality, and Social Justice. For additional information, be sure to review the rules governing Branch Presidents, WIN Chairperson’s and Contestants.

As an official unit of the NAACP, WIN strives to enhance the leadership role of women, to serve as an advocacy vehicle for the social, economic, political, educational, and health welfare issues affecting women, and to advocate for the positive development of children, while supporting the on-going work of the NAACP and its units.

The award being presented is the Lorie L. Graham Award. The Graham Award was established in 1988 after the late Mrs. Lorie L. Graham, the first winner of the NC NAACP Mother of the Year in 1955. This award honors a woman whose leadership in her community is above and beyond the call of duty to support and carry out the objectives of the NAACP.
