The Daily Record named Pat Bonner-McElroy, President of Tim's Automotive & Towing to its 2018 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women.

The Daily Record began Maryland’s Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.

Nearly 425 women were nominated this year for the statewide honor. Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships, and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.

Fourteen women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence, receiving the award for a third and final time.

A panel of business professionals and previous Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees from throughout the state reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees.

"Maryland's Top 100 Women create change and break barriers in their professional worlds but also make a difference at home and in their communities," said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. "We applaud our honorees for their passion, their commitment to excellence and for the work they do to bring communities together. The impact these women make across our state demonstrates why they are truly Maryland's Top 100 Women. The Daily Record is honored to recognize them."

The Maryland's Top 100 Women awards celebration will be held on April 23 starting with a reception at 5 p.m. at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., in Baltimore. The awards will be presented at 6:30 p.m. followed by a dessert reception. The event hashtag is #TDRawards.
