Girl Scouts Heart of the South Women of Distinction

Recently, the inaugural Women of Distinction luncheon was hosted Mr. Bill Rayburn and FNC, Inc.  benefitting Girl Scouts Heart of the South.   

The inaugural Women of Distinction luncheon was a tremendous opportunity for us to honor local women and celebrate their successes and contributions to our community.  It also generated awareness and a significant source of funding to help fulfill the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

Ms. Vicki Sneed, president of Regions Bank was honored as the 2011 Woman of Distinction and fifteen additional ladies were also honored as nominees.  Ms. Sneed is everything we want our girls to strive for.  In addition to being a trail blazer for women in the banking professions, she gives back as a volunteer and philanthropist.  

Girl Scouts is grateful to the Rayburn family, Lorri Jackson and the entire staff of FNC for making this event possible.  Sponsors include Baptist Memorial Hospital, Oxford-Lafayette County Economic Development Foundation, University Sporting Goods, James and Mary Sharp Rayner, Kitty Mann, Gloria Kellum, McAlister’s, Emileigh’s, Newk’s, Honey Bee Bakery, Holli’s Sweet Tooth, Olivia’s, Bottletree Bakery, Oby’s, Chick-Fil-A, Oxford Floral, Mimosa Flower and Gifts and University Florist.  Each day we see evidence that there is a need for strong, ethical leaders in our community, our country and the world.  Through Girl Scouting, our girls can grow to be women of conviction and compassion, as they become part of our next generation of Women of Distinction.
