Luncheon Co-Chairs/Girl Scout vets Nickoria Johnson and Teresa Lin have put together a program with the goal of “recognizing this year’s honorees and bringing together hundreds of people in North Texas to inspire women to make the world — from the classroom to the boardroom — a better place.”
This year’s Women of Distinction honorees include Rebecca Acuña, Vidya Krishnan and Jennifer Stimpson.
Presented to Girl Scout Gold Award recipients whose final projects “demonstrated extraordinary leadership, had a measurable and sustainable impact and addressed a local challenge related to a national or global issue,” the 2022 Mary Ann Cree Young Women of Distinction honorees will be Flower Mound High School senior Jordan Flint, Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts senior Gracie Wakefield and Hillcrest High School’s Collegiate Academy senior Sofiaenid Rodney-Hernández.
Joining the ladies in the spotlight will be Hiawatha Williams, who will be recognized as “Man Enough To Be A Girl Scout.”
According to GSNETX CEO Jennifer Bartkowski, “As we pursue our mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who will make the world a better place, we are excited to recognize those who are leading and charting the path alongside us. Each of these incredible individuals has demonstrated a passion for serving their community and has taken actionable steps to help others.”
One of the highlights of the luncheon will be “The Real Talk. Real Women,” when the honorees assemble on stage to “discuss how their experiences and backgrounds have given them the space and desire to be an advocate for girls and women.”
Funds raised from the luncheon presented by AT&T will “provide crucial leadership development, socio-emotional skill cultivation, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), entrepreneurship, life skills and outdoor leadership programs to more than 18,000 girls in North Texas.”
