Becky Gillis, an accountant with McLain, Calhoun, McCullough, Clark and Company for the past 14 years, was named the organization's "Woman of the Year."

"It means the whold world to me.  They're a wonderful group of ladies and I've really enjoyed the past six years that I've been in the group.  We all work together and do what we need to do," she said.

The "Business Associate of the Year" is Lyla Moore who moved to Vidalia from West Virginia 20 years ago and works at "A Main Event" in downtown Vidalia.

"I'm not from this area and for them to give me this award is beyond words," she said.

ABWA sponsors the Miss Vidalia Onion Pageant to raise college scholarship money for young women.  This year's pageant is March 16 at Southeastern Technical College in Vidalia.
