On nominating Stuart, Senator Ritchie cited her contributions first as a teacher in her native Fulton, and as the president of the Michaud Resident Council, where she has acted as a tireless advocate for those living in nursing facilities by spearheading campaigns aimed at federal, state and local officials designed to better the lives of the elderly and disabled.

“I am both honored and excited by this award,” said Stuart. “It makes me happy to know that I make a difference in my community.”
