Women of Distinction

Women of Distinction is Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council’s event to recognize outstanding women who embody the mission of Girl Scouts and have made significant achievements in our community. In addition to recognizing a Lifetime Achievement honoree, this event spotlights successful women who emulate the leadership ideals of Girl Scouts: courage, confidence and character. After looking at the future of this program, we’ve decided to host our Women of Distinction Luncheon every other year to best celebrate incredible women in our community. We look forward to celebrating with you in the Fall of 2017. Please stay tuned for details.
