Milwaukee Magazine’s third annual Betty Awards, named for our late publisher Betty Quadracci, honor extraordinary women doing great work in Milwaukee.
Debra Gillispie embodies Betty Quadracci’s perseverance.
Michelle Grabner is an artist at the top of her game.
Carla Echeveste is a fearless female who never settles for the status quo.
Raven Jemison treads boldly where few have gone before.
Lucy Mkandawire-Valhmu is known for her support of other women.
Kimberly Stuart is invested in making Milwaukee a better place for all.
Each year, Betty and Harry Quadracci’s children – Richard, Kathryn, Joel and Elizabeth – select an honoree whose accomplishments they feel would resonate with their mother.
