community, or have accomplished a significant achievement through public
or private efforts; Nancy Wright is one such woman; and

individual for the benefit of others which Nancy Wright has displayed
throughout her life; and

attention, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens
of the State of New York; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
