Aruna Miller inducted into Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame

New York: Aruna Miller, Indian American Lt. Governor of Maryland, the first woman of color and immigrant elected to statewide office in the state, has been inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame with four others.

Others honored with Miller were US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Maryland House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones, Secretary of State Susan Lee and Comptroller Brooke Lierman.

Governor Wes Moore and First Lady Dawn Moore congratulated each inductee at the ceremony held at Government House on March 21, according to a press release.

“I am grateful to stand among the remarkable women whose legacies inspire us to see more, do more, and be more,” said Miller. “Every day, I work to uplift the people of Maryland and create a strong foundation for a future that our next generation of leaders can be proud of. “

“As my partner in this work, the Lt. Governor has made an invaluable mark on this state, and I am honored to serve alongside her,” said Moore. “The women inducted tonight into the Hall of Fame are not just an inspiration, they are our foundation. Our administration, this state, and our country would be incomplete without their hard work and impact.”

“Lt. Governor Miller is a force within this administration and a leader for all young women throughout Maryland,” said First Lady Moore. “Congratulations to all the inductees, as their careers have opened the door to other women who aspire to lead.”

Established in 1985, the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame in partnership between the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland memorializes and honors Maryland women whose lives and work are of historic significance to the health, economic, political, and cultural history of the state.

The 10th Lt. Governor of Maryland, Miller is the second woman to serve as Lt. Governor and the first woman of color and immigrant elected to statewide office in Maryland.
