Norfolk, VA (April 2, 2009) – Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) Commissioner Hattie Anderson was recognized during Campostella Elementary’s 4th annual National Women’s Month celebration luncheon on Friday, March 27.

The event, which drew over 60 guests, recognized Anderson for all of the work and service she has provided to her community over the years. The theme, “Working from the past, providing hope for the future,” helped to highlight the challenges women continue to face and the contributions they make to their communities.
 
The event highlighted an interview of Anderson conducted by two of Campostella’s second grade students and the reading of the 2009 Presidential Proclamation.
 
National Women’s History Month is celebrated each March, having gained Congressional recognition in 1987. According to the National Women’s History Project, “National Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to educate the general public about the significant role of women in American history and contemporary society. Establishing this focal celebration has encouraged schools to
introduce new curriculum, and communities to recognize women who have been pivotal in their own communities."
