Golden Triangle Region

Join us for an afternoon dedicated to inspiring women who give of themselves and their time and talents to make the Golden Triangle Region a better place! 

The Women of Distinction luncheon benefiting Girl Scouts Heart of the South recognizes and links together groups of purpose-driven women in business, government and philanthropy throughout our council region who, like Girl Scouts, are dedicated to service and leadership.

Women are nominated for their leadership, community contributions and professional accomplishments. Nominees are positive role models whose accomplishments inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams.

was held on Friday, April 5th in Starkville, MS
