On Friday, December 3, 2022, County Supervisor Sequanna Taylor was honored with the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award. Supervisor Taylor made the following statement:
“My thanks go out to those who chose to honor me, as well as to the long list of volunteers who have worked beside me over the years. To receive recognition from President Biden and Vice President Harris is truly an honor.
“As my own village battles through generational curses, I remain a public servant. It is only through serving our community and helping the most vulnerable that we truly serve ourselves and find peace. I refuse to stop ‘putting on’ for my city and I encourage others to do so as well.”
The Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award is reserved for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime. Along with the ultimate honor of Presidential recognition, honorees will receive a personalized certificate, an official pin, medallion or coin and a congratulatory letter signed by the President and Vice President of the United States.
Supervisor Taylor has volunteered her time to countless projects over the years including, but not limited to, Wisconsin Counties Association Board of Directors, various National County Association committees, Milwaukee County’s Commission on Aging, School Board Director for Milwaukee Public Schools, Dream Team MKE, Program the Parks, National Education Associate, Council of Urban Boards (CUBE), Local Progress, and several other local and national boards. Supervisor Taylor organizes monthly food and resource giveaways in Milwaukee. Her work extends well past Milwaukee County.
