Lieutenant Governor Catherine Baker Knoll Accepts Women in Government Presidential Leadership Award
Date:11/16/2007

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The non-profit organization Women in Government presented its Presidential Leadership Award to the National Lieutenant Governors Association today at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. The award recognizes Pennsylvania and nine other states for launching a campaign to "End Cervical Cancer in Our Lifetime."

Lieutenant Governor Knoll accepted the award on behalf of the NLGA, and for Pennsylvania's participation in the national effort.

"I am humbled by this recognition of my fellow Lieutenant Governors. As a woman, I am especially proud that we have taken action to eliminate this highly preventable disease," the Lieutenant Governor said.

The National Lieutenant Governors Association has been involved in a nationwide campaign to increase awareness of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and its link to cervical cancer. Earlier this year, NLGA's "Ending Cervical Cancer in our Lifetime" program was honored by the American Society of Association Executives as one of the nation's most exemplary programs.

"We are honored to present the NLGA with this prestigious award," said Women in Government President Susan Crosby. "Lt. Gov. Knoll and members of the NLGA should be very proud of their extensive efforts."
