Women of Distinction

Save the Date for the 2016 Women of Distinction Luncheon

Mark your calendars for the 2016 Women of Distinction luncheon being held on Wednesday, May 11, at 11:30 a.m. at the Renaissance Baton Rouge Hotel. 

Chairing the event is Mary Patricia Wray, owner, Top Drawer Strategies, LLC, with support from committee members: Linda Law Clark, partner at DeCuri, Clark & Adams, LLP; Bethany France, director at Louisiana A+ Schools, George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, and Robyn Merrick, chief of staff at Southern University, and board chair of Girl Scouts Louisiana East.

We are pleased to confirm that former Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco will be among the honorees this year. 

The Girl Scouts Louisiana East council began its Women of Distinction recognition program in 2012 during the Girl Scout Centennial.  The council’s Women of Distinction are nominated from across the council’s 23-parish jurisdiction and are selected based on their remarkable achievements as business, community and civic leaders dedicated to supporting leadership opportunities for girls. 

While not every Woman of Distinction was a Girl Scout growing up, each one is dedicated to making our community a better place, demonstrating Girl Scout values in all she does.
