On Thursday, March 1, 2018, our community came together to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Women of Distinction Awards in the Midlands. This award not only epitomizes professional, and personal achievment, but also focuses on community activism and philanthropy. The women honored each championed the Girl Scout values and are true G.I.R.L.s (Go-getter, Innovators, Risk-takers, and Leaders).
This year’s honorees were: Kathleen Lawson Gibson, Director of Clarendon One Community Resource Center; Melanie Huggins, Executive Director of Richland Library; Erin McCaskill, Vice President and private banker for First Citizens Wealth Management; Molly Spearman, South Carolina State Superintendent of Education.
We applaud each of these women for the courage with which they lead, the confidence they teach, and the character they exhibit in everything they do. Each of our recipients help to pave the path forward for our girls to become the leaders they were meant to be.
