At last year's luncheon, more than 300 people were inspired by heartfelt acceptances by Woman of Distinction Heather Cass, and Tina Donikowski, Vice President of Global Locomotive Operations at GE Transportation Systems, the 2013 Corporation of Distinction winner. You can read more about the 2013 event here.

The Erie Awards of Distinction is an excellent opportunity for women and girls to gather in the spirit of Girl Scouting. In its sixth year, 2014 Awards will be presented to an outstanding organization, Girl Scout Troop and woman for their efforts.

Mentors needed

2013 mentors and Girl Scouts at Awards of Distinction
Last year's Awards of Distinction luncheon featured a new mentoring program for girls. Through this program, a female professional was matched with a Girl Scout to introduce her to the workplace, empower her to dream without gender limitations, and help her think imaginatively about family, work, and community life.

Women who volunteered as mentors in the program have had a tremendous impact in the lives of Girl Scouts in just half a day. This program began with the girls meeting their mentors at work, and culminated at the Awards of Distinction luncheon.

To become a mentor-for-a-day for this year's event, please contact Allison Burns at 1-800-248-3355 ext. 1020 or e-mail aburns@gspwa.org.
