COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina senator is the new leader of the National Foundation for Women Legislators.

Republican Sen. Katrina Shealy of Lexington was sworn in as chair of the group earlier this month.

The foundation brings together more than 5,000 women who served in elected positions in city, county and state government.

It provides networking and policy discussions.

Shealy has been in the South Carolina Senate for nine years and is chairwoman of the Family and Veterans’ Services Committee.
