March 13, 2012

Senator Kenneth P. LaValle is seeking nominations from the First Senate District for the New York State Senate’s 15th Annual Women of Distinction celebration.   The event honors exceptional achievement, personal excellence, and outstanding, courageous, or heroic actions on the part of individual women from across the state.  

"In past years, honorees have joined me at a special reception in Albany to accept the “Women of Distinction” award,” said Senator LaValle.  “Award recipients have had the opportunity to meet with a cross section of women from senate districts throughout New York whose hard work and dedication have helped enrich our state and communities.”  

This year, the Women of Distinction ceremony will be held at the Capitol on Tuesday, May 15  from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  

Senator LaValle is asking for nominations of women living in the First Senatorial District who would be deserving of this award.  The First Senate District stretches from Port Jefferson to the East End (both forks).  

Nominations must be received by April 9th and can be made by mail or email. Email can be sent to with  the words “Woman of Distinction” in the subject line.      

All nominations must include a biography of at least 250 words and high resolution photograph.
