WUKY and Project Ricochet are celebrating Women’s History Month with the Inaugural Women of Distinction initiative. Each Monday you’re going to get to know some of the women who made our list for 2024. Today we feature an interview with celebrated author, teacher and inspirational leader,
Claudia Love Mair.
