Mills-Peninsula’s Deborah Owdom, coordinator of the Senior Focus RSVP program, has received the California State 19th Assembly District’s Woman of the Year award.

Assembly member Jerry Hill presented Deborah with the honor, praising her commitment and passion. The award was given in recognition of Deborah’s significant involvement in community agencies, particularly those that serve older adults. RSVP is a nationwide network of volunteers committed to local community involvement.

The Woman of the Year celebration is an annual event put on by the Legislature to honor well-deserving women as a part of Women’s History Month. Each assembly member selects a woman residing in his/her district who has made significant contributions to the district and community. There will be a ceremony to honor all the women chosen in the state capitol on Monday, March 21.
