The 2017 Women of Distinction will be recognized at the annual Women of Distinction Luncheon March 9, 2017, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Harbert Center. Proceeds from the luncheon benefit Girl Scout membership scholarships through the council’s outreach programs for underserved and low-income participants without access to transportation.
“Our goal is to provide girls in our outreach program with the leadership skills that will help them break the negative cycles in which they find themselves,” said Karen Peterlin, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama.
Nominations for the 2017 awards may be submitted by any individual or organization and close on Nov. 9.
“There’s no better way to support a program that builds girls into leaders than by showing what a female leader looks like,” Peterlin said.
Categories open to women in the Over the Mountain area include The Mildred Bell Johnson Lifetime of Courage Award, Woman of Distinction, Young Woman of Distinction and Veteran of Distinction.
