Lisette Estrella-Henderson, superintendent of Solano County schools, will need to make space on her wall or shelf of awards in her Vacaville home.
Rep. John Garamendi, D-Solano, has named the 33-year educator as one of his 2018 Women of the Year, it has been announced.
“There are so many deserving women that I have the privilege to work alongside with each day,” Estrella-Henderson said in a press release Thursday. “For Congressman Garamendi to recognize me as someone who has made a positive difference in our community, I am truly honored!”
She and 45 other women will be recognized Friday during a 9 a.m.-to-noon ceremony in the Community Room at Woodland Community College, 2300 E. Gibson Road, Woodland. Each will receive a congressional proclamation that will be preserved in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
