Assemblyman Chris Norby Names Dr. Sueling Chen Woman of the Year

For Immediate Release

SACRAMENTO (March 26, 2012) – Assemblyman Chris Norby announced today that he has named Dr. Sueling Chen as Woman of the Year for his North Orange County Assembly District.

“In a wide-ranging search, I requested nominations from people and organizations across North Orange County,” Assemblyman Norby said. “I was pleased with the wide array of nominations and humbled by the great contributions to the community by so many women in my district.”

Numerous individual citizens and groups submitted nominations for Woman of the Year on Assemblyman Norby’s web site during the month of January.

“Sueling emerged from a very competitive applicant pool as the best choice for Woman of the Year from my Assembly District,” Norby added.  “Her civic, educational, cultural, and business contributions have made an immeasurable and lasting impact on North Orange County.”

Dr. Chen is the Principal and founding owner of Arborland Montessori Children’s Academy, Director and founding owner of Arborland Education Center and Arborland Academy of the Arts, and a founding member and past President of the Fullerton Chinese Cultural Association and Fullerton Chinese School.

She is also a member of the Fullerton Joint Union High School District Advisory Committee, a former Fullerton City Parks & Recreation Commissioner, a former Trustee of the Southern California College of Optometry, a former member of the Fullerton School District Budget Committee, and a former Chair of the Fullerton Chamber of Commerce Education Committee.

Since 1987, one woman from each Senate and Assembly district is selected to come to the Capitol and be honored for her accomplishments as her district’s Woman of the Year to celebrate the contributions to society made by remarkable women throughout California.

Assemblyman Chris Norby is the only resident of North Orange County in the California State Legislature.
