ALBUQUERQUE — Three San Juan County women were selected as recipients of the 2007 Governor's Outstanding Women Award.
Those selected are Lynette Justice, of Aztec, Betty Ojaye of Shiprock, and Karen Stevens, of Farmington. They are among 21 women from around the state being honored for their exceptional contributions to their community and state.
They will receive their awards during a banquet at 7 p.m. May 4 at the Hotel Albuquerque.
The New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women and the governor's office host this event.
'The caliber of award recipients this year is truly outstanding,' said Mary Molina Mescall, commission executive director. 'Their successes and achievements honor us all as women of New Mexico.'
The award recipients, chosen by a panel of judges appointed by Gov. Bill Richardson, were judged on their unique community leadership abilities, effectiveness of advocacy for women and their families, and leadership in their careers."
