Stacey Tompkins Receives New York State Senate Award

Stacey Tompkins, president and owner of Tompkins Excavating, recently received a 2019 Woman of Distinction recognition from New York State Senator for the 41st senate district Sue Serino.

Tompkins traveled to Albany to attend the State Senate’s annual Women of Distinction event with Senator Serino. The awards, which celebrate women who help improve the quality of life for New Yorkers, recognize one honoree from each State Senate District.

“Stacey is a true trailblazer whose work and leadership has been effectively shaping communities here in our local area and well beyond for years,” said Senator Serino. “Stacey has worked to successfully turn her small family lawn mowing business into the thriving enterprise that it is today, empowering those around her along the way. Her emphasis on teamwork in her own business has led to extensive community involvement.”

Senator Serino also recently held a separate district-wide networking event, Connecting Women in Our Community, which featured three speakers, including Tompkins. The event celebrated “trailblazing women who have paved their own way in their professional industries and have taken unique paths to get involved in our communities,” said Senator Serino, the first woman elected as senator in her district.

Other speakers included Kadiyah Lodge, a business service manager in the non-profit sector who connects businesses and job seekers through on-the-job training opportunities, and Rita Powers a casting director for film, television and other outlets. – Tompkins Excavating
