Girl Scouts Honors Susan Wu and Other Local Women of Distinction During North Alabama One Smart Cookie Celebration at Jackson Center

HUNTSVILLE, AL. – May 4, 2017 – Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama will host the North Alabama One Smart Cookie Celebration on Thursday, May 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Jackson Center in Huntsville. This event will raise money for the organization, recognize outstanding Women of Distinction in North Alabama, and showcase the impact local Girl Scouts have on their community.
 
“I hope community members will come out and be inspired by these “smart cookies” in the North Alabama region,” said Karen Peterlin, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama.
 
“We are the organization creating—through our skill-building Girl Scout Leadership Experience—the female leadership pipeline. The go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders of tomorrow,” Peterlin said.

“We’re excited to watch local Girl Scouts interact with the impressive Women of Distinction in North Alabama who serve as role models for all girls.”
 
The Women of Distinction Awards pays tribute to women who have made special contributions to their community through civic, academic or professional involvement and are exemplary role models for today’s girls.   
 
Honorees Include:

Christine Richard Lifetime Achievement Award
Lifetime Achievement Awards honor the memory of beloved civic leaders whose contributions had far-reaching impact in their communities. These awards are given annually to women who have prior affiliations with Girl Scouting and have made lifelong contributions to their communities by distinguishing herself through professional, community or humanitarian efforts.

About Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama
We're over 13,000 strong—9,500 girls and 3,800 adults in 36 counties in the state of Alabama who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts' founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
 
Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
