Inyo County Sheriff Stephanie Rennie is one of 12 women throughout Senate District 4 being honored  as exceptional women leaders demonstrating unwavering dedication to improving their communities.

Senator Marie Alvarado-Gil announced earlier this month that Sheriff Rennie is being recognized as  one of several SHEroes who make Senate District 4 “an exceptional place to live, work, and play in  California,” Senator Alvarado-Gil stated.

The Senator will personally present a Senate Resolution to Sheriff Rennie on Wednesday, March 27  at 4:30 p.m. at the Clint G. Quilter Consolidated Office Building, 1360 N. Main St., Bishop.

“My office received an incredible amount of nominations from around the district, and while we had  many remarkable candidates, you emerged as a woman who merits recognition,” Senator Alvarado Gil stated in her formal letter to Sheriff Rennie. “Your contribution to our community by remaining true  to yourself and showcasing your generosity and volunteerism for others has not gone unnoticed.”

Sheriff Rennie is only one of 11 other women throughout Senate District to receive the honor. District  4 encompasses 13 counties – Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa,  Merced, Mono, Nevada, Placer, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne – and 21 cities, and boasts a population in  excess of 1 million.

A 12th candidate, Calaveras County Supervisor Emeritus Merita Callaway, was selected as Woman of  the Year. Supervisor Callaway is the longest-running female county supervisor in California.

Sheriff Rennie took office in 2023 after defeating three other opponents in the 2022 primary and  general elections. She began her career in law enforcement 21 years ago as a Correctional Officer,  ending as Chief Investigator for the District Attorney’s Office prior to being elected.

“I am humbled and honored to not only be nominated but to be chosen as one of the District 4  ‘SHEroes,’” Sheriff Rennie said. “It takes a village to ensure public safety. This acknowledgement  should make everyone in our county proud as you all are the driving force that made this possible. The  real heroes are those who stand beside me, not behind me. To all you future SHEroes out there, I  want you to know that if you dream it, you can be it. With hard work, dedication, and drive, anything is  possible.”

The Sheriff was nominated for recognition by Inyo County Supervisor Trina Orrill, who in addition to  acknowledging that she is the first female sheriff in Inyo County history, noted: “Sheriff Rennie  embodies the finest traditions of a dedicated public servant, not the least of which is her ability to foster  teamwork, encourage and embrace innovation, support leadership opportunities among her ranks,  and engage in a positive, transparent manner with her team, other department heads and elected  officials, allied agencies, and the public at-large. She is a true success story and inspiration for other  women who want to take on leadership roles in any career, not just law enforcement.”

The March 27 ceremony is open to the public.
