Six Orange County Women to Be Recognized by the Nation’s Preeminent Leadership Development Organization for Girls
IRVINE, Calif. – Girl Scouts of Orange County announced its roster of 2017 Celebrate Leadership honorees, six extraordinary local female trailblazers who are Girl Scout alumnae and outstanding examples of what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™. The women will be recognized at the organization’s eighth annual Celebrate Leadership event on November 10, 2017 at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. Each honoree is paired with a current Girl Scout, ranging from Daisy (kindergarten) to Ambassador (grades 11-12), providing the leaders of tomorrow with an opportunity to connect with leaders of today.
This year’s event will also provide the community with an extra special reason to come together in honor of Girl Scouts of Orange County CEO Nancy Nygren, who will be retiring at the end of the year. Guests will have the opportunity to recognize Ms. Nygren for 12 years of extraordinary leadership, crowned by the fall opening of the Argyros Girl Scout Leadership Center in Newport Beach.
