COLUMBUS — The Ohio Federation of Republican Women (OFRW) recently honored Lauren Szabo at its Biennial Tribute to Women event. Szabo is a member of the Madison County Republican Women’s Club (MCRWC) that nominated her for the recognition. Carrie Almond, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) was present to convey in honoring Szabo.

“The women honored by the OFRW are outstanding examples of Republicanism in the OFRW and their local communities,” said OFRW President Lyn Bliss. “The Tribute to Women event honors unit club members who have given their time and talent to promote Republican candidates and values. In addition to supporting the election of excellent candidates — criteria for being honored may include things such as serving in government offices, accomplishing meaningful results in professional life, successfully rearing families and volunteering in civic and/or church organizations.”

Szabo is currently fulfilling the office of secretary for the MCRWC. She has also taken on the management of the club’s Facebook page, and the responsibility for refreshing the club’s long-neglected web page. She is the first to volunteer for club fund raising projects.

Szabo will play an integral role in her husband Nick’s efforts as he seeks re-election as London City Auditor. Lauren holds a full-time position as an engineer. She and Nick have a one-year-old daughter. The MCRWC wish they could clone her, because young members are treasured resources.

The OFRW, founded in 1929, is a statewide grassroots organization of hundreds of members in constituent clubs. It is the largest, most powerful political organization in Ohio providing the avenue for women to influence policy, develop candidates, and elect the leaders of Ohio. The OFRW is a multi-generational, multi-cultural organization providing the structure and support for political activists to learn, engage, and flourish. It is federated under the National Federation of Republican Women. For more information regarding the OFRW, visit www.ohfrw.com.
