SEASIDE AAUW AWARDS BREAKING BARRIERS AWARD AT SPRING STYLE SHOW
Seaside AAUW recognized the Honorable Judge Dawn McIntosh at their third annual style show held May 12 at Astoria Golf & Country Club. The event was held to raise money for the Scholarship Foundation which provides scholarships for women returning to school, first generation college attendees, and Tech Trek for middle age girls from our local area. This year close to $4000 was cleared with the addition of these sponsors: Columbia Bank, Dane Gouge’s Astoria Ford, Lum’s Toyota Auto Center, Norma’s Seafood, Sundial Travel, and Windermere.
Judge McIntosh first moved to Clatsop County in 1998 and was hired as the chief deputy district attorney. She supervised all child abuse and major sex crimes from 1998-2003 and received numerous awards for her work. In 1999 she was named the Oregon District Attorneys Association’s Child Abuse Prosecutor of the Year. In 2001 she received an FBI award for her outstanding record in prosecution of offenders. As an instructor at Clatsop Community College, she received the college’s Meritorious Service Award. After a stint in private practice she won the Judgeship in 2016. She is pictured here with AAUW president Cindy Gould who is awarding her the local Breaking Barriers’ Award for 2018 for Seaside AAUW.
