About this publication
When Women's Inc. was recognized as the winner of the Business and Professional Women's (BPW) "Best Promotion of Working Women's Issues in the Media" by the Arkansas BPW Federation at the group's annual "Women Mean Business" Awards Gala, the editorial staff of the magazine was honored. With that honor came the commitment from the Women's Inc. editorial board that the magazine would continue to promote businesswomen's issues and to recognize individual women making an impact in their workplace and the community.
After months of planning, Women's Inc. formed a selection committee to recognize emerging leaders in Faulkner County to be called the Women's Inc. 10 Women to Watch in 2010. The selection committee was an anonymous group of local women from various demographics and professions who took time to review nominations from the public and questionnaires.
Selection criteria were based on qualities that the committee considered essential for an emerging leader in Faulkner County: What kind of impact does she have on her workplace? Is she mentoring the next generation? Is she active in the community? The committee was overwhelmed by the nominees' accomplishments and soon realized that they had found a huge group of women in the business community who were very humbled, yet extremely deserving of this recognition.
Here are the Women's Inc. 10 Women to Watch in 2010 finalists, each with many years of proven leadership in Faulkner County, along with 10 women selected by the committee to be highlighted as emerging leaders. Thank you for your commitment to your home, family, workplace, peers and the next generation. Women's Inc. encourages all the Women to Watch to continue to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives. Congratulations!

Gloria Massey

Conway Christian School
Position
Chief Administrator (Superintendent)
Contribution to Profession
Gloria's contribution is slightly different than the other nine women to watch. Her contribution at Conway Christian School (CCS) is sometimes seen in the eyes of students or when a student graduates high school. "We are preparing the next generation of leaders and citizens. We must offer an academic and spiritual education that will prepare them to serve others with integrity and character," she said.
Students from CCS have attended colleges and universities throughout the country. They've pursued higher education at the following places: Wheaton College, Moody Bible Institute, University of Arkansas, University of Central Arkansas, University of Arkansas at Ouachita, Air Force Academy, Central Baptist University, Hendrix, John Brown University, University of Arkansas Medical Sciences, Belmont, Southwest Baptist, and many more. Next year, 34 students are expected to graduate.

Through CCS, Gloria has supported Life Choices, collected food and funds for Bethlehem House, Faulkner County Day School, Conway Human Development Center, Conway Senior Citizens, and Soul Food Café.
From 1980 to 2006, Gloria served as the music and youth minister at Beryl Baptist Church.

Every day Gloria comes to work, she is a mentor to every child she comes in contact with, whether they are in preschool or high school. She said she is "blessed" to lead a staff of incredible educators and have a positive affect on her community and world for Jesus Christ.
Gloria is also a mentor at her church and has had the privilege to see youth she mentored go on to serve in leadership positions throughout the country. One of her favorite quotes is by Phillip Brooks, "Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones."
Both professionally and personally, Gloria's desire is to be the best that God has called her to be and to please Him. She recognizes that her accomplishments derive from the help of others and by faith in God. "Apart from Him, nothing in my life has been accomplished that is of any real value. He has established CCS and has had His hand upon our school since the beginning," Gloria said. She was a part-time teacher and the only administrator when Conway Christian School was founded in 1992. Gloria's devotion to the school increases with every school year and her hope is "for CCS to provide the best academic and spiritual training for our students." As the start of another school year is underway and schedules start to get busy, Gloria offers a positive thought, "We often face challenges in life. To have the peace of God, I must commit my thoughts and ways to Him. He will change the challenges into opportunities for His glory."

Sarah Mattingly

Position
Adult Events Coordinator and Reference Librarian
Contribution to Profession
Sarah establishes a sense of "community" as an integral part of the public library service through cultural events and programming. She believes the library is a "community center of learning" and should include entertaining and informative pedagogy. In 2007, upon accepting her current position, Sarah developed and established adult programs at the Faulkner County Library.
In addition to her position at the library, Sarah has assessed the community's cultural needs. For example, in May of this year, she screened the documentary, "Beyond Our Differences," a film about religious tolerance
Public and Community Service
Sarah has brought programs to the Faulkner County Library that are for the community, serve the community, and most importantly, are free to the community. Some of these programs include author discussions, monthly concerts, documentary screenings, and a variety of classes and workshops. Responding to the need of her community, Sarah has started to offer monthly, informative resume workshops. In addition to being a coordinator, she is also an artist. Sarah teaches art workshops at the library, free of charge, and provides the materials.
Creation and Implementation of unique initiative in the workplace or community
Keeping with her mission to assist the community, Sarah wrote and applied for a grant from the Arkansas State Library to create a program for senior citizens. She received the grant and started the Wii Senior program, which offers seniors the opportunity to play two Wii gaming consoles, computer assistance, and book retrieval.
Mentoring others
Since 2005, Sarah has taught a Fundamentals of Charcoal Drawing Class to children, ages 8-12. The class is free and drawing materials are provided. The classes usually last six to 12 weeks and end with an awards assembly and exhibition.
Sarah not only teaches the classes, she developed the curriculum for them as well. Each class relates to a lesson in art history and a lesson on a selected element or principle of art, for example, movement or texture. Her joy is seeing students return the following year for another class and advising young artists as they become young adults.
After speaking with Sarah for a few minutes, a couple of things are perfectly clear; she loves her job and her community. She started working at the library part-time in 2003, but she accepted the position as Adult Services Librarian in 2007. Her passions include reading (of course), public service, and art.
In 2008, her mixed media art piece was selected for the Delta Exhibition. The Delta Exhibition, featured at the Arkansas Arts Center, is one of the longest running juried, contemporary art exhibitions outside of New York.
Sarah has invested herself at the Faulkner County Library because of the community and to promote intellectual freedom. "The library protects the freedom to read," Sarah explained. She sees the library as a creative learning center that is a changing, yet an integral part of the community. Sarah truly enjoys her job and only wants to bring bigger and better event and programs to the establishment. Make sure to visit Sarah, no doubt she will change your view of the library, "I make noise at the library!" she said with a laugh.

Public and Community Service
Zaudi serves as one of the directors for Leaping Libros, an English as a Second Language (ESL) summer reading camp. Zaudi said the event was a great success and each student took home a bag with at least 10 books in it. She had numerous responsibilities and advocacy opportunities. Some of the opportunities included:
â¢Working with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), who provided a grant for the event.
â¢Organizing a school district wide book drive. The collected books were distributed to the campers.
Additionally, she has worked with Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) as a liaison for a Hispanic community who needed their services.
Recently, she aided Dr. Peg Fallscorbitt from Hendrix College in a unique way. In order for Fallscorbitt's students to better understand the Hispanic culture, Zaudi opened her home and gave them a personal lesson. She cooked some Latin cuisine and hosted a panel of Hispanic leaders from Conway.
Other areas of service include

Now, she is the Community Liaison Coordinator for Conway School District and helps family and students daily.
As she looks to the year ahead, Zaudi is focused on "increasing parental involvement and become more involved with students in the high school," because, as she so confidently says, "Helping others is the right thing to do." Zaudi said she is always telling her students and everyone else around her to, "believe in themselves, that comes first." In 2010, Zaudi is looking forward to taking care of herself, something most women sacrifice. "I want to put myself first, so I can be a better wife and mother."
