JACKSON, Tenn.- The city of Jackson honored two of its most giving, selfless and compassionate neighbors with its Man and Woman of the Year Award ceremonies, Tuesday night.

Altrusa International hosted the 61st Woman of the Year Awards Ceremony, Tuesday night in north Jackson. The group honored Vicki Burch, president of West Tennessee Business College.

Her impact in the city extends well beyond her school. From working with the YMCA, to helping form the Disaster Recovery Service to being the first woman admitted into the Jackson Rotary Club, Burch proved herself well-deserving of tonight's award.
