Georgetown University Honors Norton

One of the District’s beloved lawmakers is being honored today. The Georgetown University Law Center is planning to commemorate DC Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s hard work and dedication to others with a proposed installation of her near the well-known clock tower.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Georgetown University Law Center Dean William Treanor, and Georgetown University President John DeGioia will take part in the ceremonial groundbreaking.

The event is set for 4 pm at the Georgetown University Law Center, 600 New Jersey Avenue in Northwest.

Before Holmes-Norton was elected to office she was a full-time tenured professor at the university’s law school. After winning her first race she began teaching seminar’s entitled Law Making and Statutory Construction. She is being recognized for also being a pioneer for women in the workforce.
