Brewster, N.Y. – (6/10/13) – Tricy Cushner has been honored as the Town of Yorktown’s nomination for the 2nd Annual Women of Distinction Hall of Fame, hosted by Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson).
“It is my pleasure to accept Mrs. Cushner into my Women of Distinction Hall of Fame” says Senator Greg Ball. “I commend her for her selfless dedication to the community of Yorktown and I greatly look forward to the ceremony in September.”
“It is a tremendous honor to receive the Women of Distinction Award for a community that has been so receptive and caring from the first day my family arrived here in 2001. It is an absolute pleasure to be involved with so many Yorktown community members who enjoy the same labor of love necessary to keep each other safe and cared for,” said Cuschner about the nomination. “Senator Ball’s proclamation includes a statement recognizing the ability to inspire others with compassion, diligence and commitment which immediately allowed me to think of the many others who inspired and continue to inspire me this way. I share this award with the tireless Yorktown volunteers who truly make our community a better place each and every day.”
Created and hosted by Senator Ball, The Women Of Distinction Hall of Fame was designed to honor outstanding women from throughout the 40th Senate District.
