Girl Scouts, staff, volunteers, and community members at a Women of Distinction event

Women of Distinction

Girl Scouts of Central Texas celebrates women who have distinguished themselves as outstanding members of their community through individual excellence and high levels of achievement. Past recipients have included women honored for excellence in the areas of business, education, government, communications, health care, sports, volunteer services, multicultural activities, and Girl Scouting. We are looking for women who are role models for all of our members, girls and adults alike, showing them that with hard work and perseverance, anything can be accomplished.
