You might have seen our publisher Heather Baker on your television set lately. Or on vacation with her husband and children in AY Magazine. Or at her kids’ activities. But what you don’t see about a very active publisher is her commitment to organizations that honor and protect women and their families.
This is why Women’s Own Worth has just named Heather Baker Woman of the Year for 2019, and she will be honored at WOWapalooza at the Governor’s Mansion Friday, October 11, 2019.
W.O.W. founder Jajuan Archer said, “There are so many great people in our state making a difference but one who stands out is Heather Baker. She uses her job as publisher of her magazines to share stories of hope to inspire people and empower women to know their own worth.”
Archer continued, “Heather has worked tirelessly for our organization and also helping others in central Arkansas. Whether it is for children in foster care or being a champion for the family of Ebby Steppach, the Little Rock girl who went missing in 2015 and whose body was discovered in 2018, Heather continues to fight to have their stories heard in a statewide platform.”
Lisa Fischer, editor-at-large, said, “We are in no way surprised that W. O. W. would honor Heather this way. She brings her passion to the office every day for different organizations, but W.O.W. has been something she has championed from day one. AY Magazine is proud to have partnered with Jajuan so she could tell her story with dignity.”
