North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Clerk Wayne Wink have recognized the honorees for the 28th Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor. The gathering was held to celebrate the achievements of this year’s extraordinary women.

Event chairpersonWink said, “The town is proud to honor these outstanding women for their incredible service to North Hempstead. Each of these women reflects the best that our communities have to offer, and we are proud to honor them for their work.”

“North Hempstead has no shortage of inspirational women who have made a tremendous impact on our communities,” said Bosworth. “We are fortunate to induct this new class into the Women’s Roll of Honor and celebrate their achievements as part of our North Hempstead family.”

Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor breakfast to honor women who have contributed to their community or have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts.

The Women’s Roll of Honor is named after the late May W. Newburger who served as North Hempstead Supervisor from 1994 to 2003.

This year the event was held outdoors under a tent at a socially distanced ceremony and was limited to guests and their families to keep everyone safe.

Video footage from the event will premiere on NHTV channel 18 or 63 on Cablevision and channel 46 on Verizon FIOS beginning on Monday, June 28, and air daily at 4 p.m. that week. The event can also be watched online by visiting: or the Town’s YouTube page.
