On Wednesday, May 20, 2015 the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester will be honoring Boston Police Deputy Superintendent Nora Baston at the 22nd annual New England Women’s Leadership Awards at the Seaport Boston Hotel at 6 PM.
Since 1992, the New England Women’s Leadership Awards (NEWLA), have celebrated the accomplishments of women in the community. NEWLA honorees are role models for the young members at Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester; sharing their challenges and leading by example, the honorees teach young members the importance of determination, compassion, self-confidence and giving back to the community.
“Building trust and forming relationships with our young people is what makes the Boston Police Department so successful and special,” said Commissioner William Evans. “Whether on the basketball court or organizing a youth/police dialogue, Deputy Baston continues to inspire and be a true role model for the youth of this city. I congratulate Nora on her award.”
