                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mr. MICHAUD. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Kaye Flanagan, 
Lynn Kraemer Goldfarb, Gail Kelly and Donna M. Loring on being awarded 
the 50th Annual Deborah Morton Award by The University of New England.
  The Deborah Morton Award, first presented in 1961, was the first 
annual award in Maine to honor women who have achieved high distinction 
in their careers or whose leadership in civic, cultural or social 
causes has been exceptional. The award was named in memory of Deborah 
Morton of Round Pond, valedictorian of the 1879 class of the Westbrook 
Seminary. Morton was a teacher, dean, linguist, historian and prominent 
Portland civic leader whose service to the State of Maine spanned more 
than 60 years.
  Kaye, Lynn, Gail and Donna all display the exceptional commitment to 
public service that Deborah Morton did. Their tireless efforts have 
improved the lives of thousands of Mainers from all walks of life. 
While their backgrounds and careers are diverse, their selfless 
devotion to their communities is a shining example to all of us. Their 
efforts are a testament to the legacy of Deborah Morton, and I wish 
them all continued success in the years to come.
  Mr. Speaker, please join me again in recognizing Kaye Flanagan, Lynn 
Kraemer Goldfarb, Gail Kelly and Donna M. Loring for their outstanding 
commitment to the state of Maine and for the impressive example they 
set for Maine's young women.
