sion of her designation by the Epilepsy Foundation of  Northeastern  New
York  as  one of its 2013 Winning Kids at its 25th Annual Confections in

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that the  quality  and
character  of  life in the communities across New York State are reflec-
tive of the concerned and dedicated efforts of organizations  and  indi-
viduals  who  devote  themselves to the welfare of the community and its
citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Angelina Rose Dutcher upon  the  occasion  of  her  designation  by  the

  WHEREAS, The Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York works  dili-
gently  to  ensure  that people with seizures are able to participate in
all life experiences and to prevent, control and cure  epilepsy  through
services, education, advocacy and research; and
  WHEREAS, Each year the Epilepsy Foundation selects one or two children
to  represent  all  children  with  epilepsy  in  Northeastern New York;
"Winning Kids" symbolizes the spirit and courage that all children  with
epilepsy  display  in dealing with their seizures; Angelina Rose Dutcher
was chosen because of the positive attitude that she  maintains  despite

seizures, including surgery; and

special soccer and baseball leagues; she is also training in the martial
arts; and
  WHEREAS,  As  residents  of  Northeastern  New York face the physical,
emotional and social uncertainties of epilepsy  everyday,  the  Epilepsy
Foundation  is  there to help them become happy, self-confident, produc-
tive adults, by offering them, as well as their  friends,  families  and
caregivers a variety of programs; and
  WHEREAS,  Epilepsy affects two percent of the population, and approxi-
mately one in fifty children; and
  WHEREAS, Angelina Rose Dutcher, the  daughter  of  Nolan  Dutcher  and
Melissa  Sangi,  a  ten  year  old student at the Windham-Ashland-Jewitt
Elementary School, truly merits this high honor; and
  WHEREAS, An outstanding role model, Angelina Rose Dutcher has  brought
honor  to  her  family, school and community and may stand with pride in
her achievements; and

recognize Angelina Rose Dutcher as a Winning Kid and to wish her well in
all her future endeavors; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
