Ann Dillard was chosen as the Pandora Inspiring Woman of the Week for Channel 5 Twin Cities Live last week. Nominated by her son Joseph Dillard, this is what he had to say about why he nominated his mother as an inspiring woman.
I am not only nominating this woman because she is the first woman I ever loved, but also because she is one of the strongest women I have ever known. My mother has been an incredible inspiration to me ever since she was PTA President at my Elementary School. With her passion for education, I got to witness the respect and admiration she received every day from the administration, and the hard work she put in to make positive changes every day. She taught me manners, integrity, and most importantly, my mom taught me love. Along with love, I am proud to have learned from my mom, the importance of giving back.
