David honored with Girl Scouts award

TOLEDO – Girl Scouts of Western Ohio has announced the 2015 Women of Distinction award recipients for the Toledo region. Of the five nominees, Debbie Sauder David is included with the honorees.

The Girl Scouts Women of Distinction Awards honor exceptional women who have made significant contributions in five key areas, such as healthy living; financial empowerment; science, technology, engineering, the arts and math; leadership; and community responsibility. Women are selected by a committee of their peers because of the difference they make in the community that impacts the future of girls. Recipients exemplify the Girl Scout mission by living with courage, confidence, and character, and making the world a better place.

“By honoring women that make significant contributions in these key areas, we are creating pathways for today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders,” said Angela Tennaro, director of regional services for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, “For girls to succeed in a leadership role, they need to know there are women paving the way who open doors, create opportunities, and cheer them on. These women offer hope and inspiration. They’re positive role models for the next generation.”

Nominees will be honored at the Women of Distinction event held Thursday, Oct. 8 at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Attendance is open to the public, but RSVP is required. Tickets are $50 and include hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.
