Office of the County Executive of New Castle County
Be it hereby known to all that
The Honorable Thomas P. Gordon, New Castle County Executive
is pleased to present this tribute to honor
2016 National Mother of the Year
County Executive Gordon is pleased to present this tribute to honor and congratulate Michelle Wall, just named 2016 National Mother of the Year.
This energetic, super-positive mother of two – who works in event planning, volunteers as her daughters’ Girl Scout troop leader, helps the Multiple Sclerosis Society and serves as an elected member of the Appoquinimink School Board – won this honor because she “excels … as a mother and as a community leader,” the national nonprofit American Mothers say and we agree.
We are proud that, after living in many states as a military child, college student and young career woman, California-born Michelle chose this as the place to put down roots, raise her children and become deeply involved in the community.
During her year as a global ambassador highlighting motherhood and issues that impact mothers and children, we are proud that she also will represent New Castle County and Delaware.
THEREFORE, Thomas P. Gordon, County Executive for New Castle County, does hereby join in celebration of Michelle Wall and her selection from a field of outstanding nominees from all over our great nation, adding our congratulations and best wishes for her term as 2016 National Mother of the Year.
Presented on this 6th day of May, 2016
by order of the County Executive.
Thomas P. Gordon
New Castle County Executive
