West County Wastewater (WCW) is proud to announce that Board of Director’s President and honoree, Cheryl Sudduth, has been recognized for her extraordinary contributions as a civic leader and received the Ella Hill Hutch Award at a virtual award ceremony presented by Black Women Organized for Political Action (BWOPA) on November 4.

The prestigious award is named after American politician, Ella Hill Hutch, who was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977 and reelected in 1980.  Ms. Hill Hutch was the second African American elected to that position and the first African American woman Supervisor.

Madam President of the West County Wastewater Board of Directors, Cheryl Sudduth, has served on the board since 2018 and is only the second female Board President elected to WCW’s Board of Directors.

Also, an Honoree of the Ella Hill Hutch Award as a chapter Honoree, is West County Wastewater’s own, Angela Andrews.  Ms. Andrews holds the roll of Capital Portfolio Manager and has been with the organization since 2019.  Ms. Andrews was honored for her work as a City Council member for the City of Hayward and is recognized as the first African American woman on Hayward’s City Council.  Ms. Andrews was elected in November 2020, and before that served on the Hayward Planning Commission, the Keep Hayward Clean & Green Task Force, and a Hayward Advisory Committee Member of Hayward’s Downtown Streets Team.

West County Wastewater is proud of both women and their achievements, both within WCW and beyond.
