Corp and Lajtha honored

Mary Corp was named Hermiston Woman of the Year in a February 5 event. Hermiston honored its best and brightest with a mix of sincere compliments and good-natured ribbing Wednesday at the Distinguished Citizens Awards Banquet.  Former Hermiston Superintendent Jer Pratton was named Man of the Year, and Mary Corp was awarded Woman of the Year during the 41st annual event at the Hermiston Conference Center.

Kate Lajtha received notice last week from Springer Publications that she has been nominated as a "Scientist of Distinction" to be honored in conjunction with the upcoming International Women's Day.
