New York State Senator Ken P. LaValle is requesting nominations for a woman to be recognized as a New York State Senate “Woman of Distinction.”
Residents of the 1st Senate District have been encouraged to nominate friends, spouses, coworkers and neighborhood leaders who have performed outstanding work on behalf of their communities.
“This program provides us with a special opportunity to honor extraordinary women for their achievements.” said Senator LaValle. “I am proud that we have many deserving women in the area I represent. I look forward to reviewing the accomplishments of the nominees.”
The Senate will honor a distinguished woman from the 1st Senate District and throughout the state at a May 13 ceremony in Albany, with each honoree’s photograph and biography becoming part of a special exhibit. Previous winners have included leading women from the business world, 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 significant odds.
