Two fire lieutenants from Elburn honored by Topinka

Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka saluted 15 fire service leaders, including two from Elburn, as part of her office's celebration of Women's History Month.

Among those honored were:

• Montgomery & Countryside Fire Protection District Lt. Andrea Montgomery

• Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District Lt. Sheri Nielsen

• Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District Lt. Lisa Schopp
 
In presenting the leaders with personalized proclamations, Topinka applauded the tenacity and courage of women who have not only entered fire service, but risen to the highest ranks of their departments.
 
"For years women interested in fire service have been told they need not apply," said Topinka. "But you broke through that barrier, rose to the highest ranks of your Departments, and in the process showed women and girls everywhere that anything is possible if they work at it. I thank you for your service."
