Congratulations, Mme. Secretary!

 

 


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton highlighted the Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast on Sunday at Wallace Community College-Selma.

Clinton received the 2019 International Unity Award and was inducted into the Women’s Hall of Fame by former Senator Hank Sanders and his wife, Rose Sanders.

“Women have a hard time when they seek position of power and fight for women’s rights,” Hank Sanders said. “She had to fight to become a Senator and fight to become Secretary of State.”

The capacity crowd in WCCS Gymnasium gave a thunderous standing ovation for Clinton, a former U.S. Presidential candidate in the Democrat party. The former First Lady connected the two honors.

“The two honors go hand in hand,” Clinton said. “The fight for Civil Rights, Women’s Rights and human Rights have been the driving force of my career. I’m humbled and honored to receive the award.”

With the addition of an inscription recognizing the local roots of former senator, secretary of state, presidential candidate and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Park Ridge Heritage Committee has completed its wall of local, historic milestones.
