Town Supervisor Sheila M. Meegan was among 63 women recognized as a “Woman of Distinction” by the state Senate last week in Albany.
Meegan was chosen by state Sen. Patrick M. Gallivan, R-Elma, in the annual tradition of nominating one individual from each district to be enshrined along other historical women whose contributions have had a positive impact on the state.
“Sheila is committed to helping and representing citizens of West Seneca, whether through her countless hours of volunteer work or dedication as an elected leader of the community,” said Gallivan, whose 59th Senate District includes parts of Erie, Livingston and Monroe Counties, and all of Wyoming County.
A Gallivan staffer mentioned the award during last week’s Town Board meeting.
“It is a privilege and an honor, and I’m truly blessed to have this job,” Meegan said that night.
