Sammons Financial Group has supported the girls and young women of the YWRC through sponsorship of our Sit On It! event for the past three years and we are proud to have them as the 2017 Presenting Sponsor.
To gain insight to what motivates Sammons to be such a strong supporter of local young women, we interviewed Rhonda Elming, Vice President of Product Development for Sammons and YWRC Board member since 2014. Like the YWRC, Sammons is committed to making lives better and giving back to the communities in which we live.
