Nicely was honored at a banquet presented by Shea Homes and 99.9 KEZ at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch on January 30th.

"I am so happy to be part of the Beth McDonald Women of the Year program now in its seventeenth year. Every year we honor incredible women who are so deserving. Once again, we have an amazing group, we are here to reward these women with the recognition they deserve. Like all of these women, Jessica Nicely, our overall winner, gives of herself without asking anything of others and that is what this program is all about." said Beth McDonald, 99.9 KEZ On Air Host.
