Madeline Behrens-Brigham Honored
Hayes Valley’s own Madeline Behrens-Brigham was honored March 4th by the Board of Supervisors as District 5’s Woman of the Year! Madeline is well known for her art and her advocacy, and especially the mixture of both on behalf of youth, seniors and others in her community. In a ceremony at City Hall, the Board of Supervisors presented Madeline with a Certificate of Honor, noting her years of work on behalf of others.

Students, educators and PTA members at John Muir Elementary are well aware of Madeline’s dedication to our local elementary school. Seniors at AgeSong Communities are familiar with her tireless involvement in senior causes. People in the arts community are appreciative of the support and guidance Madeline provides, whether for a specific event, networking on a project, or providing moral support at a crucial time.
Upon receiving the award, Madeline said: “Here’s to District 5! There’s always more work to be done and there will always be more projects. In the meantime, it was such an honor to receive this award and have so many of you be there when it happened.”
Here’s to Madeline!
