Lillie Knox was a vital and important part of the history and current success of the Women’s Business Council – Southwest (WBCS) and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Lillie passed away after a long battle with cancer on November 10, 2003. In 2005, the Lillie Knox Investing for Growth Award was created by WBCS to honor Lillie for her support of women business enterprises through her commitment, spirit, passion and determination.
Each year at the annual Harvesting Partnerships luncheon, an award of up to $5,000 is awarded in Lillie’s memory. The recipient(s) are certified-WBE member(s) of WBCS who has identified a critical need in her business that, if met, will support the growth and development of her business. The cash award may fully (or partially) fund this need and may include, but is not limited to, equipment purchase, technical development or upgrade, consulting services, strategic planning, Web site development, planning or education.
