Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - DAILY LOCAL NEWS -

Cen­tral Mont­gomery County Busi­ness and Pro­fes­sional Women cel­e­brated Na­tional Busi­ness Women’s Week with their Woman of the Year award to Hon. Ch­eryl Lynne Austin of Abing­ton dur­ing an award din­ner at Pep­per’s. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Madeleine Dean read one of the many procla­ma­tions in honor of Judge Austin who broke many ceil­ings in her Navy and law ca­reer. The judge shared how she could not have been in the po­si­tion to chal­lenge the norm if not for her fam­ily, friends and the in­valu­able men­tor­ship from fel­low BPW mem­bers. When Austin was elected in 2011, she was the first African Amer­i­can woman judge in Mont­gomery County.
