Juniper Park Activist Sciulli Named Woman Of Distinction
State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. announced that his selection for this year’s Woman of Distinction from his district, Lorraine Sciulli, received that special recognition from the state senate at a May 15 Albany ceremony. Sciulli is a Middle Village civic activist.
Each of the 62 senators’ honorees from throughout the state is now part of a special exhibit comprising their photos and biographies and proclaiming the contributions of such exemplary New York women. Each year, the senate invites local residents to nominate friends, coworkers and neighborhood leaders whose outstanding work on behalf of their communities makes them deserving of the honor.
“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,” Addabbo said. “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 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.
Addabbo is also offering the complete, online 2012 Women of Distinction exhibit through his senate Web site, www.addabbo.nysenate.gov. You may also access Lorraine Sciulli’s individual page via this link: www.nysenate.gov/story/lorraine-sciulli.
