Senator Shirley Huntley (D-Jamaica) said, “It is with extraordinary pleasure that I would like to congratulate the great nominees for the Women of Distinction. Whereas their tireless efforts and outstanding accomplishments can not only better our nation with their great works but also become a part of history. These women have set a shining example for the young women of New York State and indeed all over the world. They have set the bar for what is and can be the great success for all people.”
