    Congratulation to OPFMA Board Member Belinda Kenley who is honored by the YWCA Dayton as a 2024 Woman of Influence. She was given this prestigious award because of her successful career in a highly competitive field (energy services), her public service as Deputy Mayor of Centerville, and her role as a mentor to many. We are grateful that she chooses to support OPFMA as a volunteer board member. As Belinda says, "Say YES to opportunities, then figure out HOW!"
