State Rep. Brenda Gilmore (D-Nashville) was honored with the Elected Women in Excellence Award at the National Foundation of Women Legislators Capital Forum in Washington, DC. Rep. Gilmore was one of only ten legislators in the nation to receive the honor.
“I am honored to receive this award from such a prestigious organization dedicated to helping women legislators be the best public servants they can be,” said Rep. Gilmore. “My goal has always been to be the advocate and representative my constituents deserve, and I am humbled to have been recognized for these efforts.”
Rep. Gilmore received the award on November 21 at the NFWL Capital Forum. The conference also celebrated the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the National Order of Women Legislators.
