Charlene Thompson awarded 2017 Woman of Distinction by State Senator John E. Brooks
Thompson represented Brooks’ 8th Senate District at the Annual “Women of Distinction” awards ceremony in Albany. She was recognized along with more than 60 other honorees from across New York State.
Brooks said, “There are remarkable women in our midst whose lives, work and accomplishments contribute to making our communities better, our families stronger, and serve as a special example to others. Charlene Jackson Thompson has dedicated her career to social and economic justice and bringing a voice to under-served communities and an active member of the South Shore community. She is beyond deserving of this recognition and I am proud to honor her vast achievements.”
