Women of Distinction

2018 Women of Distinction honored at annual Baton Rouge luncheon

Four community leaders were named Women of Distinction in April at the council’s annual luncheon and champagne reception in Baton Rouge. The 2018 honorees were Donna Britt, News Anchor, WAFB-TV; Dr. Rebekah Gee, Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health; Julie LeBlanc, Supervisory Civil Engineer, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; and Elizabeth “Betsy” Stoner, Executive Director, Board of Elections, Orleans Parish.

Luncheon guests were inspired as the honorees shared a few words, followed by Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser and Linda Law Clark who encouraged everyone to give generously to Girl Scouts.

A big thank you also goes to corporate sponsors:  DeCuir, Clark & Adams, LLP; Top Drawer Strategies LLC;   Louisiana Healthcare Connections a nd WAFB.  All proceeds are going to support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in southeast Louisiana.


The Girl Scouts Louisiana East council began its Women of Distinction recognition program in 2012 during the Girl Scout Centennial, and has recognized 38 amazing women thus far as Women of Distinction. Past Women of Distinction are listed here in alphabetical order.
