Souter named Woman of the Year by Logue

Nevada County business and community leader Dottie Ray Souter has been named Woman of the Year for the 3rd California Assembly District.

“Dottie is a pillar of our community,” said Assemblyman Dan Logue, R-Linda, who selected her Friday.

“Her outstanding spirit of civic engagement has served as an inspiration to those around her and helped to make Nevada County and the north state a better place. She is well respected for her dedication to local causes and her avid volunteer work.”

Souter serves on the board of directors of the Nevada County Association of Realtors and is a member of the Nevada County Economic Resource Council, working to create jobs and bring economic stability and strength to the area.

She also is the club membership chairwoman of Nevada County Republican Women, and she recently was elected recording secretary for the Northern Division of California Republican Women Federated.

Souter is a broker and owner of Dottie Ray Realty. She volunteers with organizations including the Grass Valley Soroptimist Club and the American Cancer Society, among others.

She and her husband, Craig, live in Grass Valley.

The ceremony to honor each Assembly district’s Woman of the Year will take place on Monday, March 8, in the state Assembly chambers.
