Senator Sharon Carson has been honored by the Nashua Telegraph as one of Greater Nashua’s 25 Extraordinary Woman. Carson was lauded for her constituent service and legislative work in support of New Hampshire’s military service members and their families.
Carson joined the 2014 honorees in receiving her award at the Telegraph’s Second Annual Extraordinary Women luncheon, held on April 24th at Nashua’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. Carson was selected from among hundreds of nominees, said the Telegraph, and was ultimately chosen for the award by a panel of business, community, and nonprofit leaders.
“It is a real honor to be a part of this distinguished group of professional women who are making invaluable contributions to their professions, communities, and the state of New Hampshire,” said Carson. “I am grateful to the residents of Senate District 14 who have placed their trust in me and given me the opportunity to serve them in the State Senate over the last six years.”
Carson is one of three female Senate Committee Chairs, and the only member of the Senate to Chair two committees (Judiciary and Executive Departments & Administration). She is a retired sergeant first class in the Army Reserve and an adjunct professor at Nashua Community College.
“These women and their stories are commendable and should serve as inspiration to young people on how to make a difference in your community,” said Jon Nevins of the Telegraph.
