Upper Marlboro, MD – The 29th Annual Prince George’s County Women’s History Month Luncheon themed “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment” will be held on Thursday, March 20, 2014, at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland.  NBC4 reporter and anchor, Erica Gonzalez, will serve as mistress of ceremonies.  Author and motivational speaker Jewel Diamond Taylor will deliver the keynote address.

As is past tradition, during the luncheon, the coveted Gladys Noon Spellman Award for Outstanding Public Service will be presented to a Prince George’s County Government woman who is a resident of the County, possesses strong leadership abilities, has a track record of success and contributes to the community through outside interests and activities.  In addition, the 2014 Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarship recipients will also be recognized.  

The Gladys Noon Spellman Award was established in 1986 as a lasting tribute to Congresswoman Spellman and her accomplishments during her long and outstanding career in public service. Throughout her career, Gladys Noon Spellman successfully spearheaded many efforts to effect social and political reform in all facets of life for her native Prince George’s County, for the State of Maryland and for the nation.  

In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity.  A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.
