Sr. Terry Recognized as a 2019 Congressional Woman of the Year
On Saturday, April 13, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) hosted the Congressional Women of the Year Awards Ceremony to honor local women in the San Gabriel Valley who have contributed to the community through service, organizing, or leadership. The award, now in its 10th year, is given to women nominated by people in their own cities and communities. Rep. Chu released the following statement:
“The annual Women of the Year Awards Ceremony is one of my favorite events of the year. Today’s winners have stood out in our communities because of their drive and commitment to give back to the San Gabriel Valley. Every single honoree today has been selected through an exhaustive process, starting with a nomination from their neighbors, friends, and family – the people in their communities who have benefited most directly from their service. We received a flood of nominations from cities across the district, and today’s winners stood out not only because of their work, but because of the admiration from their neighbors and fellow citizens. I’m so proud of these role models and am honored to be recognizing them.”
Sr. Terry was among those selected as an honoree from Claremont. CA. in recognition of the leadership and commitment to the Crossroads, Inc. program for formerly incarcerated women.
