MANCHESTER, N.H. (February 24, 2011) – FairPoint Communications employee and Goffstown resident Sarah Dubois was recently selected as one of “20 Outstanding Women You Should Know” in the 95.7 WZID Outstanding Women Contest. Recipients were presented with their awards during the 95.7 WZID Women’s Expo on Saturday, February 19th.

Though busy with her job, Dubois helped start a company-wide recycling program and serves as building coordinator for the local United Way campaign and other community programs. Dubois also volunteers at her children’s schools, participates in city cleanup efforts and lends a hand to a neighborhood watch program.

“Congratulations to Sarah Dubois for being selected as one of WZID’s 20 Outstanding Women You Should Know,” said Teresa Rosenberger, FairPoint state president in New Hampshire. “Sarah is a key contributor to FairPoint in the way she does her job, with her enthusiasm and can-do attitude as well as her willingness to step in wherever she is needed.
