A record-breaking five YWCA Legacy winners were introduced at a tea March 18 at the Glendale home of Mary Boger. Nominees were so outstanding, Boger said, the selection committee found the decision especially difficult this year. "The solution was to recognize five candidates instead of four," she said.

Ani Bedrosian Adaimy was feeling the pressure Thursday as she talked about her role as the new president of an organization previously run by men: the Armenian American Chamber of Commerce Greater Los Angeles chapter.
