sion of her designation by the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New
York as one of its 2013 Winning Kids at its 25th Annual Confections in

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that the quality and
character of life in the communities across New York State are reflec-
tive of the concerned and dedicated efforts of organizations and indi-
viduals who devote themselves to the welfare of the community and its
citizenry; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Angelina Rose Dutcher upon the occasion of her designation by the

Wolferts Roost Country Club in Albany, New York, on Saturday, March 9,
2013; and
WHEREAS, The Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York works dili-
gently to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in
all life experiences and to prevent, control and cure epilepsy through
services, education, advocacy and research; and
WHEREAS, Each year the Epilepsy Foundation selects one or two children
to represent all children with epilepsy in Northeastern New York;
"Winning Kids" symbolizes the spirit and courage that all children with
epilepsy display in dealing with their seizures; Angelina Rose Dutcher

tive adults, by offering them, as well as their friends, families and
caregivers a variety of programs; and
WHEREAS, Epilepsy affects two percent of the population, and approxi-
mately one in fifty children; and
WHEREAS, Angelina Rose Dutcher, the daughter of Nolan Dutcher and
Melissa Sangi, a ten year old student at the Windham-Ashland-Jewitt
Elementary School, truly merits this high honor; and
WHEREAS, An outstanding role model, Angelina Rose Dutcher has brought
honor to her family, school and community and may stand with pride in
her achievements; and

all her future endeavors; now, therefore, be it
