Michelle Scully, Executive Director for Marymount California University’s Lakeside Campus was named to a distinguished group that Congressman John Garamendi honored in September as part of the Third Congressional District’s “Women of the Year” celebration. Scully received the honor along with 13 other women at a ceremony on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, at the Yuba County Government Center.
“Through their work and volunteerism, these women have all vastly improved the quality of life in their communities,” Garamendi said. ”They are exemplary examples of sacrifice and devotion.”
Scully is an educator, economic development advocate and an agriculturalist. Her family owns Scully Packing, and she and her husband, Pat, have two sons. They live near Lakeport. She has been instrumental in opening Marymount California University’s Lakeside Campus. Marymount is the first four-year university to open a campus in Lake County.
“I was so surprised to learn I was being recognized by Congressman John Garamendi as one of his Women of the Year for the Third district,” Scully said. “It’s such an honor.”
Over the years Scully has watched and learned from so many passionate, involved, caring women (and men) who work tirelessly for the community.
“They do it out of love and the belief that this is an amazing place and with dedication towards making it even more amazing with their efforts and commitment to so many of the important issues we face,” Scully said. “It’s an honor to have been recognized and something I hope to continue to work towards and live up to. This community won my heart when we first moved here, and it continues to do so every day since.”
