Senator Marcellino Invites Nominees For "women Of Distinction"

Carl L Marcellino

April 08, 2008

Senator Carl L. Marcellino (R-Syosset) today invited local residents to nominate friends, coworkers and neighborhood leaders whose outstanding work on behalf of our communities makes them deserving of special recognition by the State Senate as a New York "Woman of Distinction."

The Senate will honor distinguished women from our area and throughout the State at a June 5th Albany reception, where each honoree's photograph and biography will become part of a special exhibit proclaiming the special contributions of exemplary New York women.

"There are remarkable women in our midst whose lives, work or special accomplishments contribute to making our communities better, making our families stronger and serve as special examples to others," said Senator Marcellino. "The Senate's 'Women of Distinction' program provides a special opportunity to honor these women for their achievements and to thank them for the special pride they bring to our communities."

Previous winners in the annual event have included leading women from the worlds of business, academics and civic life, as well as those who have performed heroic or selfless acts, made significant discoveries or provided examples of personal excellence against difficult odds.

Women who live in the 5th Senate District, which serves the City of Glen Cove and the northern portions of the Towns of Oyster Bay and Huntington are eligible to be considered as a "Woman of Distinction." Special nomination forms are available by contacting Senator Marcellino's office at 516-922-1811 or 631-549-0729. Nominations must be submitted by April 24th.
