This is the first of a four-part series saluting women in the community throughout the month of March in honor of National Women’s History Month.

GREAT BARRINGTON — March is more than a month to sport shades of green and don shamrocks. It’s also Women’s History Month, an occasion to observe and celebrate the role women have had in U.S. history and today and in the Berkshires.

Sharon Gregory may be retired, but she’s certainly not tired.

In the Berkshires, Gregory has served on a number of nonprofit boards, such as the the Pittsfield-based Berkshire Natural Resources Council, and is frequently engaged in civic leadership activities. She retired from her role as vice-president of corporate development and planning at Iredale Mineral Cosmetics in 2014.

She’s also the former chairperson of the Great Barrington Finance Committee. She’s a painter. She’s a classical and jazz pianist. She’s co-curated art shows throughout the county.
