HONORED: Palm Beach Atlantic University Names Melania Trump It’s “2020 Woman of Distinction”


Finally….Melania Trump has been rightly honored.

And there should be a lot more like this!

Thank you to Palm Beach Atlantic University for honoring our wonderful First Lady, Melania Trump, with their 2020 Woman of Distinction award!

How well deserved!


Even Time magazine covered the award:

First Lady Melania Trump is set to be recognized by Palm Beach Atlantic University as its 2020 “Woman of Distinction.”

The university typically fetes two women who have contributed to the community each year at an honorary luncheon, the Palm Beach Post reports. Melania Trump will be the sole recipient of the recognition at this year’s awards luncheon, though, which will be held on Feb. 19.

“Our first lady is an exquisite human being, a magnificent wife and life partner, a superb mother and an outstanding first lady,” the luncheon’s co-chairwoman Eileen Burns told USA Today.

“First ladies define the history of our country” Frances Fisher, another co-chairwoman for the event at the private Christian university, told the Palm Beach Post. “We are honored to recognize Mrs. Trump as a Woman of Distinction and the only first lady since Mrs. Kennedy to be a Palm Beach resident. This will be a truly memorable event.”

Melania Trump Marks 1-Year Anniversary of Her 'Be Best' Initiative as President Looks On

Melania Trump celebrated Tuesday’s anniversary of her “Be Best” initiative by announcing its expansion and another international trip to promote it.

The Trumps changed their primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Fl. in late 2019, noting that President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort would be their permanent home.

As First Lady, Melania Trump’s focus has turned to children with her “Be Best” campaign launched officially in 2018, which aims to combat cyberbullying and opioid abuse. Trump has traveled across the U.S. and to several different countries, meeting with diplomats and other officials and taking part in panel discussions as part of the campaign. She has been criticized over the initiative, however, given that her husband, President Trump, frequently uses his Twitter account to name-call and denigrate his opponents.

And from local CBS12:

The first lady is being honored by Palm Beach Atlantic University as their 2020 Women of Distinction, an award which recognizes women for their charitable leadership of organizations that support the arts, education, health care and other community initiatives

“Our first lady is an exquisite human being, a magnificent wife and life partner, a superb mother and an outstanding first lady, who represents us brilliantly in the United States and worldwide,” Eileen Burns, co-chair of the event told the post. “Melania is a perfect example of a Woman of Distinction and we are most proud to honor her.”

The first lady has traveled all around the world to help bring awareness to programs that are designed to helping children. 

In May 2017 she helped launch Be Best, her initiative that promotes children's social and emotional health.

Proudly Support Trump!

The exact same hat our President wears!
