St. Thomas, USVI – The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative (N.O.B.E.L.) Women recognized Senator Donna A. Frett-Gregory as a 2023 National Shining Star Award Honoree during its annual legislative conference on June 23, 2023. The award recognizes women whose causes greatly contribute to their communities. Senator Donna A. Frett-Gregory was nominated for her commitment to civic engagement, charitable causes, and impact on governmental relations. "I am humbled and elated by this recognition. I go about my Legislative and community work because of my love for my people, not with any expectation of being recognized for it,” stated Frett-Gregory.

N.O.B.E.L. Women is an organization through its membership that has a long history of addressing the needs of communities nationwide. “Being recognized by women leaders from across the nation is a reminder that there are others getting up every day and working to build better communities. I thank those who nominated and voted for me on this national recognition. Congratulations to the other women who also shared the stage with me as 2023 Shining Star Honorees; Ms. Symone Sanders, Ms. Yolanda-Cash, Esq. and Ms. Paula Hoisington,” concluded Frett-Gregory.

N.O.B.E.L. Women is a non-profit, non-partisan organization primarily composed of current and former black women legislators and many appointed officials. Established in 1985, N.O.B.E.L. Women is the premier organization of Black women legislators committed to increasing and promoting the presence of Black women in government, non-profit, and corporate leadership in the United States. In recent years N.O.B.E.L. Women have expanded its vision to serve as a global voice to address a myriad of issues affecting the lives of all women. Each year, the organization presents awards at its Shining Star Gala.
