Those in attendance were treated to some inspiring speeches from each of the honorees, who conveyed stories of the inspirations and motivations in their lives while encouraging those in the audience to act as mentors in the community. Special guests included students from Wayland High School, members of the Chamber's inaugural Women's Leadership Program, past Pinnacle Awards honorees, and elected officials including Senate President Therese Murray.
