Women of Interest

WMRA's Women of Interest series profiles just a few of the women in our region doing things... a little differently.  These are women with unique perspectives, in new roles, or just approaching life along the road less traveled.  Like many other women, they are changing the lives of people around them in positive ways.

Among those featured in our series will be Mayor Deanna Reed of Harrisonburg and Viktoria Parvin, the pastor at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Charlottesville.   Listen for Women of Interest this summer on WMRA.

Support for this special news series comes from F & M Bank, a local, independent, community bank since 1908 with locations throughout the Shenandoah Valley.

Over the next few months we’ll profile some women in our region doing things... a little differently.  These are women with unique perspectives, in new roles, or simply approaching life along the road less-traveled.  Like many other women, they are changing the lives of people around them in positive ways.  This is the first in the WMRA series 'Women of Interest'.

St. Mark Lutheran Church in Charlottesville welcomed a new pastor in May. Viktoria Parvin is only the second female pastor to serve the church, and as WMRA’s Sefe Emokpae reports, her hope is that she won’t be the last.
