Letters of Nomination
For Woman of Distinction: Geraldine "Girlie" Lopez Forman

In her letter of nomination, Sandy McCoy wrote of Forman: She has spent her life giving back to others, living her life as the epitome of a humanitarian and educator to those in need. A Kingman resident for three decades, Forman spent her first career with the Mohave County Probation Department, where she stressed the importance of education. Over the quarter century she was there, Forman established a number of educational programs designed to get troubled juveniles to focus on their futures. Forman would ultimately retire from the probation department, but she didn't quit on kids. She took a job at Kingman High School, where she had a huge impact on all students, particularly Hispanics and those who were disadvantaged.




For Religion: Linda Chevalier

As a member of St. Johns United Methodist Church, Chevalier has been involved in virtually every aspect of church activities, according to nominator Penny White. Sunday school, vacation Bible school, youth groups, choir, and anything else she can lend a helping hand to, wrote White. As part of the church's Mission Team, Chevalier has led members to Alaska, Guatemala, Mexico, Appalachia, New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and, closer to home, to Heber in Arizona's Rim Country after a devastating fire. She also coordinates the church's Operation Christmas Child and Care Boxes for Military Troops programs. She organizes projects to assist Kingman's senior citizens with yard work, home repairs and other help designed to improve their quality of life. Chevalier also worked for the school district. Everyone was important to her and she always went the extra mile. Linda has that rare capacity to accept people where they are and the willingness to help in any way she can.

Since its inception in 1984, more than 200 accomplished women have been honored at the annual Women Making History Awards program in Kingman.

This year's winners add to the legacy of women who have helped make Kingman a dynamic, sustainable community.

From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 12 women will be honored in 10 categories: education, volunteerism, religion, the arts, business, pioneering, professions, homemaking, public service and "woman of distinction."

The event, part of National Women's History month, takes place at the Mohave Museum of History and Arts.

The winners are also honored on pages three and four of today's Daily Miner.
