Annual Program Honors Women’s Contributions to Our Community
Senator Carl L. Marcellino today invited local residents to nominate friends, coworkers and neighborhood leaders whose outstanding work on behalf of their communities makes them deserving of special recognition by the State Senate as a New York “Woman of Distinction.”
The Senate will honor a distinguished woman from our area and throughout the state at a May 9th Albany ceremony, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these 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 pride they bring to our communities.”
Previous winners in the annual event have included leading women from the world 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.
