In celebration of Women’s History Month (March 2023), Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva of the 67th Assembly District presented Women of Distinction Awards to thirty-five women, including Chinese Family History Group member Helen Lee, whose service have made a positive impact to our communities. The newly-drawn 67th Assembly District represents Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, LaPalma, and parts of Orange. The event was held at Cypress College on March 25, 2023.
Helen Lee retired from Kaiser Permanente Southern California, City of Los Angeles, and County of Los Angeles. She currently serves as Governor Gavin Newsom‘s appointed State Commissioner on the Asian and Pacific Islander American Affairs Commission.
In addition to participating in her genealogical research, Helen has been instrumental in overseeing our CFHG elections.
Congratulations, Helen, 恭喜恭喜！
