Fayette County, which is home to an Apprentice contestant and the Georgia winner of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s “Most Attractive Bachelor”, may soon be able to add another award winning resident to their list. Notable Peachtree City resident, Lisa Williams, is a contender in the L’Oreal “Women of Worth” Award.

L'Oreal created the “Women of Worth” Award to celebrate woman's worth and build their self-esteem. Williams was nominated for this award because of her organization, Living Water for Girls, a child sex trafficking rescue program. Williams, who takes no salary, had the inception for Living Water for Girls when she and a group of friends, called Circle of Friends Celebrating Life learned Atlanta was a hub for commercial sexual exploitation.
