The 2014 Women of Distinction include: Kiki Baker Barnes, Director of Athletics, Dillard University; Gayle Benson, Philanthropist and Wife of New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans owner Tom Benson; Mionne LaShe Gooch, Nuclear Field Electrician’s Mate First Class (SW), United States Navy; and Sally-Ann Roberts, Co-Anchor, WWL-TV, and Co-Founder, Each One Save One. The 2014 Women of Distinction are nominated from across the council’s 23-parish jurisdiction, and selected based on their remarkable achievements as business, community and civic leaders dedicated to supporting leadership opportunities for girls.

Not every Woman of Distinction was a Girl Scout growing up, but each one has been dedicated to making our community a better place, demonstrating Girl Scout values in all she does.
