RICHMOND – Governor Bob McDonnell issued a certificate of recognition, recognizing July 10, 2012 as Yvonne B. Miller Day in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and called the observance to the attention of Virginia's citizens. State Senator Yvonne Miller was the first African-American woman elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, the first African-American woman elected to the Virginia State Senate, the first woman to chair a Senate Committee, and she was the longest-serving woman in the history of the Virginia State Senate. Governor McDonnell's Chief of Staff Martin Kent will present the certificate of recognition to Yvonne Miller's family tomorrow, with a flag that was flown over the state capitol in Richmond.
