A special honor today for a local woman. At 9 a.m. trading will begin for the day on Wall Street, and a Middlebury woman will ring the bell to begin the NASDAQ exchange.

Katy Picket is the northern Indiana district manager for Fastenal. She'll ring the bell at 9:30 this morning.

She says she won the honor because her district sales exceeded their quarterly goal by over 200 percent.

Picket and one of her top-performing sales reps arrived in New York on Saturday for this once in a lifetime experience.
