Betsy Wells recognized Aug. 8 as 'Distinguished Woman'at banquet

The Cleveland County Commission on Women honored three local residents at its 22nd annual Distinguished Women's Banquet at LeGrand Center Aug. 8 in Shelby. One was Grover's Betsy Wells, stalwart of our Dem party at all levels.

Betsy is a retired English and drama teacher who has spent many years encouraging women--and all citizens!--to become active in politics as a way to improve and advance opportunity for all.

A former chair of Cleveland County Democratic Party, she is currently chair of Tenth Congressional District Democrats.
