On Friday at a luncheon in Echo Park, Rep. Adam Schiff honored a group of inspiring women from communities in the 28th Congressional District that includes Burbank, Sunland Tujunga, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta. This recognition is made each year during Women’s History Month.
Among those recognized were Jean Maluccio of La Crescenta, Ann Neilson from La Cañada Flintridge, Lynn White-Shelby of Burbank, Susan B. Stewart of Sunland and Seda Khojayan from Glendale.
“It was wonderful to meet with this group of remarkable women, and to recognize their outstanding work in our community,” said Rep. Schiff. “These women demonstrate the truth of the maxim that if you need something done, ask a busy person. Each has worked tirelessly to support a myriad of charitable, business and community causes, and made an indelible mark on our region. It was an honor to recognize them and to show our appreciation for their extraordinary service.”
In addition to Maluccio, White-Shelby, Neilson, Khojayan and Stewart, other honorees were Kellye Nakahara Wallett (Pasadena), Renae Plant (Los Feliz), Tracy A. Stone (Elysian Valley), Lynda Rescia (Silver Lake), Cheryl Ortega (Echo Park), Nadia Sutton (West Hollywood) and Sandra Caravella (Atwater Village).
While there are no specific criteria for nomination, Rep. Schiff looks for women to recognize who – through their work or volunteerism – have improved the quality of life for the community.
Rep. Schiff entered a special tribute to each woman into the Congressional Record and presented these tributes to each woman.
