WPRI 12 is honoring inspiring women during International Women’s Month. The Remarkable Women contest received nominations nationwide, and four local finalists were selected. Tonya Maselli is one of them. After the 9/11 attacks, Maselli and her daughter helped families find missing loved ones at ground zero. Despite being a single mother and battling breast cancer, she continued to volunteer and work two jobs as a social worker. Each Tuesday in March, a finalist will be featured on 12 News This Morning and The Rhode Show, and their stories will be posted on WPRI.com. The winner will be considered for Nexstar’s Nationwide 2023 Woman of the Year award.
