Titus Awards Myers For Community Service
Assemblywoman Michele R. Titus presented longtime Far Rockaway resident and community leader, Zandra Myers, with the Pauline Rhodd Cummings Award at the 35th Annual New York State Black and Puerto Rican Legislative Caucus Awards Ceremony on Sunday, February 19.
This achievement is awarded to a woman who has distinguished herself in serving her community, in honor of the legacy left by the late humanitarian, Pauline Rhodd Cummings.
“As your Assemblywoman, I am proud to extend to you this award in esteem of your altruism, dedication and efforts to improve the community,” said Assemblywoman Titus.
Myers has made notable contributions through resources such as the Joseph P. Addabbo Center, Community Board 14, The Arverne Urban Renewal Committee, the office of Assemblywoman Cummings, the Jewish Coalition of the Rockaway Peninsula and the Claddagh I.N.N.
Assemblywoman Titus invited southeastern Queens Legislators to the podium in a united endeavor to salute the 2006 recipient at the Legislative Conference in Albany.
Myers enjoyed a thunderous round of applause as she thanked Assemblywoman Titus and the Legislators for both recognizing and honoring her public service throughout the district. In her acceptance of the award, Myers noted for the audience how instrumental the legislators are in helping her address issues.
“Yes, I know them all,” said Myers.
In closing remarks, Assemblywoman Titus emphasized the importance of respecting those who have made enormous contributions to the community in the past and present, such as Myers.
Congressman Gregory Meeks and State Senator Ada L. Smith and others were on hand for the event.
