A half-dozen women employed in manufacturing in Western Pennsylvania were chosen on Tuesday to receive for excellence in science, technology, engineering and production.

The inaugural STEP Awards honor 122 women nationwide at all levels of manufacturing. The awards are sponsored by The Manufacturing Institute, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the University of Phoenix and Deloitte.

An award presentation and reception will be held Feb. 5 in Washington. The locally based awardees are:

• Colleen Wood Cordova, Kennametal Inc., Latrobe

• Vickie DeThomas, FLIR, Freeport

• Anne Herman, Mine Safety Appliances Co., Cranberry

• Martina Igel, Kennametal Inc., Latrobe

• Liz Russell, Stella-Jones Corp., Downtown

• Bethanne Dearmitt, Somerset Welding & Steel Inc., Boswell, Somerset County

“We chose to honor these women because they each made significant achievements in manufacturing through positive impact on their company and the industry as a whole,” said Jennifer McNelly, president of the Manufacturing Institute.
