As part of Professional Womens’ Week, the Springfield Business and Professional Women’s Club awarded Jill Settles the 2009 Woman of Achievement Award and Keith Schlosser, owner of Mordecai’s restaurant, the 2009 Boss of the Year Award.

Club president Fran Carrico said the two were chosen from an application process and the winners were chosen based on accomplishments and the number of applications received.

Settles, director of Washington County Community Education, was also selected as the group’s 1983 Young Career Woman. She said she was very honored and surprised, and was thankful that people feel she is helping the community.

Schlosser attributed his award to his employees, saying “I have a really good group of employees, so I feel lucky.”
