Toohil Presented with the 2014 Elected Women of Excellence Award
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) is proud to announce that the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) has named her as one of its 2014 Elected Women of Excellence Award winners.

This award was established in 2013 as part of NFWL’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in order to honor the hard work and dedication of women leaders from across the country. In all, NFWL has recognized 60 elected women from 37 states.

“I am honored to have been selected by the NFWL to receive this prestigious award,” said Toohil. “I enjoy working hard for the people I represent and it is extremely gratifying to have our efforts recognized. Thank you.”

The award was recently presented to Toohil.

“We are thrilled to acknowledge these women,” said NFWL chair and New Jersey state senator, Diane Allen. “They showcase the strong leadership qualities, focused work ethic and determination that we try to instill in young women across the nation, and deserve to be recognized for their tremendous efforts.”

Toohil was first elected in 2010 to represent the 116th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, which includes a portion of Luzerne County. She has been the prime sponsor of legislation dealing with juvenile justice, the foster care system, child protection and welfare reform.

The winners were nominated by their colleagues and constituents from their home states and then chosen by NFWL board members.

Through annual educational and networking events, the National Foundation for Women Legislators supports elected women from all levels of governance. As a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFWL does not take ideological positions on public policy issues, but rather serves as a forum for women legislators to be empowered through information and experience.
