Pasadena Now reports, “Justice Leondra R. Kruger, a Pasadena native and member of the California Supreme Court, was lauded as the 41st Assembly District’s ‘Unsung Hero’ by Assemblymember Chris Holden and the California Legislative Black Caucus.” The article notes that the Caucus established the Black History Month Unsung Hero Award “to honor individuals who have selflessly dedicated themselves to their respective districts.”

Holden is quoted as saying about Justice Kruger, “By enduring all that it takes to become the second African American woman and third youngest person ever to be appointed to the California Supreme Court, she is paving the way for upcoming young and diverse leaders and showing them that they are capable of more than they ever imagined.”
