Women of Distinction
Women of Distinction is a nationwide Girl Scouts of the USA program that recognizes the achievements of women. As Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York educates girls to be future community leaders, we want to recognize the community leaders of today. Since 1985, GSNENY has been hosting Women of Distinction events across the council. Honorees are awarded for their strength of character, dedicated community service, emphasis on life-long learning, along with their dedication to fostering self-confidence and leadership skills in others. These events are one of many ways we keep Girl Scouting vibrant in our communities. Many women who are leaders in their fields credit Girl Scouting with helping them build the set of skills that paved their road to success.
Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York is proud to announce the honorees for 2017 Women of Distinction event:

We are seeking supporters to join us in celebrating this year’s honorees and the development of the next generation of female leaders!
