Woman of Distinction Award-Dayton

Girl Scouts of Western Ohio proudly announces the Woman of Distinction Awards Reception on Thursday, October 30, 2014, at The Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center, Mathile Theater in Dayton.  The Woman of Distinction Award was established to honor the many exceptional women in our community who are paving the way for girls.  Honorees exemplify the Girl Scout mission by living with courage, confidence, and character, and making the world a better place.
For girls in our community to succeed in leadership, they need to know there are women leading the way by opening doors, creating opportunities and cheering them on. Recent findings by The Girl Scout Research Institute indicates a girl’s success can be determined by positive influences in Five Key Focus areas – emotional and physical health; financial literacy; science, technology, engineering, art, and math; leadership and academic success; and global citizenship.
Woman of Distinction honorees are women of outstanding success who are making significant contributions in an impressive array of fields. They give hope and inspiration to girls through their achievements and passion for our communities. By making major impacts in the focus areas, they are role models for girls and leading the way for future girl leaders.
