Catherine Lockhart-Mills, former Human Services commissioner, was named Woman of the Year at the League of Women Voters' annual Impact Awards Luncheon earlier this month.
The League will also used the event to acknowledge and celebrate 30 years in the Virgin Islands.
Lockhart-Mills has made her mark in the field of social welfare as the former commissioner of Human Services and continues to serve the community as deputy program director for High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). Her dedicated service and impressive record earned her this year's Woman of the Year Impact Award, the League said.
The first organizational meeting of the League of Women Voters was held in April 1968. In April 1970 the ST. Thomas/St. John League received full league status. In November of that year, the St. Croix chapter voted to join the St. Thomas/St. John chapter.
In its 30 years here the League has had a significant impact on the lives of the people of the Virgin Islands. They have actively encouraged participation in the voting process, analyzed the territory's budget, co-sponsored the "Meet the Candidates" television forum every election year, filed the "Save the Long Bay" lawsuit and lobbied nationally for the right to vote, in committee, for the delegate to Congress.
