Aquila Polonica Publishing president Terry Tegnazian was honored with a 2015 Pioneer Women of the Year Award by Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz and the Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women.

The year 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the Pioneer Women of the Year Award, which is sponsored by the Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women, the Los Angeles Mayor and Los Angeles City Council. This award honors the contributions of remarkable women leaders who have made exceptional contributions in the service of the community. With a population of 3.8 million, Los Angeles is the second-largest city in the United States, and one of the most diverse.

The awards festivities kicked off on Friday, March 27, 2015 with a breakfast in the beautifully restored Tom Bradley Tower at the top of historic Los Angeles City Hall, followed by a presentation ceremony in Los Angeles City Council Chambers. On Sunday, March 29th, Ms. Tegnazian attended the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Pioneer Women of the Year Award held at the Los Angeles Mayor’s Mansion.

“I feel extremely honored by this award,” Ms. Tegnazian said after the ceremony on Friday. “It was totally unexpected. I am humbled by this recognition of my work, both as a community volunteer and as a publisher.”

The large, handsomely framed award certificate presented to Ms. Tegnazian reads: “The City of Los Angeles salutes and celebrates your tremendous accomplishments serving the public, and congratulates you on the Pioneer Woman of the Year Award. As an intrepid community volunteer, an avid champion of libraries, founding director of the Los Angeles Musical Salon, and a publishing award winner, you have brought joy, knowledge, and profound civic spirit and leadership to neighborhoods and people across Los Angeles. Through steadfast ways and caring deeds, you have made the City of Los Angeles a better place in which to live.”
