You've heard of a hero, but what about a "Shero?"
At the 7th annual Sheroes tea party, 11 African American women were honored for their involvement in the QC.
The honorees are teachers, business entrepreneurs and other women who've paved the way. Organizers say these women go above and beyond and stand out among the rest.
"They make a mark in whatever they are active in and they benefit our community, make our community and our village a better place for us to live in," says Shirleen Martin, founder of A Gathering of Women.
The tea party also honored four QC women over the age of 90 who make a positive impact in their community.
