Six members and two staff members from Girls Inc. of Washington County traveled to New York City March 14 to attend the Girls Inc. Celebration Luncheon.
The luncheon is a gathering of nearly 1,000 business and community leaders committed to the Girls Inc. mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
The luncheon is an opportunity for Girls Inc. to recognize individuals who, by their work and example, are creating a better future for girls.
The luncheon awards are presented by Girls Inc. scholars, who are outstanding young women who have demonstrated leadership in their communities and schools.
Since 1993, Girls Inc. has awarded $2.58 million in college scholarships to young women who are in the 11th or 12th grade and are members of a Girls Inc. affiliate.
