Unsung Heroine Award to Emily Guthrie

Wednesday, March 21, 2018
Evanston Roundtable

Emily Williams Guthrie was honored as the 2018 Unsung Heroine from the 13th Cook County Board District. Ms. Guthrie was honored by the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues for her role as a community advocate and dedicated volunteer.

Ms. Guthrie was instrumental in bringing First Night Evanston back after a five-year hiatus. First Night Evanston aims to bring performing artists to the community at a reasonable price and to celebrate New Year’s Eve as an alcohol-free event. Ms.Guthrie has served on First Night Evanston’s board since 1992. She is director and past chairman of Evanston Safety Town, a summer camp for 4- to 6-year-olds that focuses on safety instruction. She has been a leader of the program since 1985.

Ms. Guthrie was honored along with 17 other women – one from each of the 17 county districts and one from Cook County at large – during Women's History Month. Unsung Heroine honorees were selected based on their contributions to their communities, families and professional endeavors that are vital, but seldom recognized. They are drawn from the community they serve.
