From the Mitchell Daily Republic:
Corporate Voices for Working Families and Working Mother Media announced this week that U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., is one of 30 recipients of the 2012 Best of Congress Award, celebrating lawmakers for their leadership in improving the quality of life for working families.
?As a working mom, I know what a challenge it is to have a full-time job while also being a full-time parent,? Noem said in a news release. ?Even with the demands of today?s world, I believe family should come first. That?s why it is important to give working parents the chance to be there for their children and succeed in their career.?
