Ms. Diana McKenna, veteran Pascack Valley High School English teacher and adviser of the Human Rights League, was recently named a Women's History Month Honoree by the Bergen County Commission on the Status of Women for her work toward “improving the workplace and fighting for economic equality for all women.”


This year’s theme, into which Ms. McKenna’s work fits perfectly, is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence.”  Ms. McKenna will be honored at a Women’s History Month event on March 28 in Hackensack, where her bio and photo will be displayed alongside those of the other honorees.


In September 1975, the Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders observed International Women’s Year by creating the Advisory Commission on the Status of Women, to study the needs, capabilities and concerns of women in Bergen County, and recommend and review programs and plans affecting the status of women, in order to promote the expansion of their rights and available opportunities. Today, the Bergen County Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) continues to be a catalyst for identifying and resolving issues that impact women. The Commission’s main goal is to promote the expansion of equal rights for women.


We are incredibly proud of Ms. McKenna, not only for being recognized with this award, but for her dedication and leadership to her students.
