Sharon Joseph received the Zonta Club 2014 Woman of Achievement Award for her “tireless and selfless” service in the community.

Joseph received the award at the July 21 Woman of Achievement program at the Zonta Club of Fredericksburg. The event was at the home of David and Ginger Mitchell.

Joseph received a plaque and a bouquet of yellow roses from Bonnie Baseke, current president and a member of the Woman of Achievement Committee.

Zonta gives the annual award to a local woman who is a visionary, leader, worker bee or philanthropist who has demonstrated a commitment and provided leadership in the community.

Joseph, a Fredericksburg native, began her career in Houston before returning to the Hill Country in 1988. She is the owner of Joseph Financial Partners and a member of the Zonta Club of Fredericksburg as well as a past president.

In 1987, she received the Woman of the Year award by River Oaks Chapter of American Business Women’s Association while she was living in Houston.

She also received the Five Star Wealth Manager award, was the 2003 Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Woman of the Year, was featured in “Texas Monthly” in 2009 and just recently received the Women Certified’s Woman’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors.

Zonta officials say Joseph has advanced the status of women in this community through her service to Bethany Lutheran Church, Hill Country Memorial Hospital, the Texas Healthcare Trustees Board, the Texas Hospital Association Board, the Gillespie County Historical Society, the Historic Review Board, the Courthouse Square Advisory Committee and as a director on the Salvation Army Board.

The regular meeting is the third Monday of the month. For more information about the Zonta Club of Fredericksburg, contact Jo Ann Krauskopf at 997-4480 or Mitchell at 997-8983.
