Being a Distinguished Women’s Shadow Girl is an incredibly wonderful honor and opportunity. Not only was I allowed to shadow Dr. Susan Gorman, the Dean of the School of Sciences at Stevenson University, but I also had the unique opportunity to speak to almost three hundred premier business leaders from our community. As a Shadow Girl, you meet the best and brightest of not only the community at large but also of Girl Scouts. Each of the other Shadow Girls was poised and brilliant – it was truly an honor to meet both the Distinguished Women Honorees and their Shadow Girls.
I am very grateful to the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland for hosting such a spectacular program. I have learned useful interview skills and been able to polish my speech skills. The Distinguished Women’s Award Reception allowed me to meet community leaders who have made central Maryland such a wonderful place to live. I would like to extend a special thank you to my mentor, Dr. Susan Gorman of Stevenson University.
I highly encourage all eligible Girl Scouts to apply for this honor – you will learn a great deal from the application and interview process alone!
