Girl Scouts Women of Distinction programs kicked off in Colorado Springs and Denver


At the beginning of August, Girl Scouts of Colorado officially kicked off the Women of Distinction season by holding private receptions to welcome this year’s honorees. The Colorado Springs reception was held at The Cliff House at Pikes Peak on Monday, Aug. 6th, and also included the announcement of a new honor we have started for women under the age of 40, Women to Watch. Denver held their reception on Wednesday, Aug. 8th, at the home of 1997 Woman of Distinction Barb Grogan.

Girl Scouts of Colorado honors top women leaders in our community as Girl Scout Women of Distinction. These women have reached remarkable levels of achievement as business, philanthropic, government, education and community leaders. They are committed to making the world a better place for the girls of today and tomorrow. They donate their time, talents and experience to Girl Scouting and also support Girl Scouts financially. Read more about this year’s honorees on our blog here: Colorado Springs and Denver.

Public events to recognize these women will be held later this fall. The Colorado Springs event is Sept. 13th, while the Denver event is Oct. 23rd . Both dinner events will feature food and drink items inspired by the world-famous Girl Scout Cookies. Also premiering at both events will be a feature film on healthy living created by Colorado Springs Girl Scout Troop 3810. Get a sneak peek of the video filming below.
