Soroptimist International honors Mikki Stevens

North Idaho College communication instructor Mikki Stevens has been honored with a women of distinction award in the arts and culture category by Soroptimist International of Coeur d'Alene.

The award was one of eight awards given by the organization at its 28th annual women of distinction awards ceremony on Nov. 19 at the Cedars Floating Restaurant.

She was recognized for her role as a founding member of the performing group known as the Red Hot Mamas. Since the group's creation 17 years ago, the Red Hot Mamas have performed at two presidential inaugural parades and dozens of local, national and international parades.

"Mikki's dream was to have something that was open to women of all ages, shapes and sizes to be able to put on a costume, make up their faces and for a time, step out of their day-to-day lives and do something that most of them never thought they could," wrote Vicky Jo Carey, in her nomination of Stevens. "The experiences that were afforded these ladies and the memories and friendships they made will follow them for all of their lives. By fulfilling their dreams, they fulfilled Mikki's dreams."
