Dear Neighbor,

With the fall season well upon us, I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the upcoming events in our community, including details about several Delaware SPCA holiday events and the upcoming St. James Annual Turkey Dinner. Please see below for additional information. 

I'm also pleased to share that I served as a Principal for a Day at Mote Elementary School last week, where I had the opportunity to visit several classrooms and learn about the current programs and initiatives offered to its students. The program helps to foster a relationship between community, business, and education leaders throughout our state, and I'm happy to have had the chance to interact with some of Delaware's finest teachers and students. 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions or concerns you may have about issues in the 19th District or the state. 

Sincerely

Kim Williams

 

 

Principal for a Day at Mote Elementary School

Rep. Kim Williams participating in the Delaware Principal for a Day program at Mote Elementary School.

Every year, public officials have the opportunity to participate in the Delaware Principal for a Day program, spending time at a local school visiting classes and learning more about the skills and education our children obtain each day. Last week, I had the chance to visit Mote Elementary School in the Red Clay School District and checked out some of the different programs offered to its students, including the annual book fair. 


2016 Elected Women of Excellence Honoree

I'm excited to share that I've been selected as a 2016 Elected Women of Excellence Honoree by the National Foundation for Women Legislators. The award was established in 2013 as part of the National Foundation for Women Legislators 75th Anniversary Celebration in order to honor the hard work and dedication of women and leaders from across the country. The winners were nominated by their colleagues and constituents from their home states and then chosen by a distinguished panel of National Foundation for Women Legislators members.
