The Women of Distinction event is part of a national Girl Scout program that celebrates the achievements of women. Honorees are women whose personal and professional accomplishments make them positive role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams. They exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service.
Funds that are raised through Women of Distinction events help to extend Girl Scouting to underserved communities and increase service to local troops. It enables Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi to provide exciting, engaging and educational programs and to offer financial assistance to girls who otherwise would not be able to participate in Girl Scout activities, opportunities, events or adventures.
