April 13, 2010

April 13, 2010- Ten exceptional women from the New Haven area were honored April 6 at Girl Scouts of Connecticut's Women of Achievement Event for their outstanding accomplishments and commitment to the community. The honorees included:

•        Marna P. Borgstrom, Yale New Haven Hospital

•        The Hon. Toni Harp, Connecticut State Senator

•        Dr. Dorsey L. Kendrick, Gateway Community College

•        Jocelyn Maminta, News Channel 8

•        Althea Marshall-Richardson, Empower New Haven

•        Carolyn M. Mazure, Ph.D., Yale School of Medicine

•        Julia M. McNamara, Ph.D., Albertus Magnus College

•       Peyton R. Patterson, NewAlliance Bank

•        Barbara L. Pearce, H. Pearce Realty

•        Dacia Toll, Achievement First.

Keith Kountz from News Channel 8 performed the Master of Ceremonies duties and  Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal, and State Comptroller, Nancy Wyman were on hand to present citations from their offices to each of the honorees.

Jennifer Smith Turner, Girl Scouts of Connecticut's CEO, presented each of the women with their awards. "All of our honorees are extraordinary women and exemplary role models for the thousands of Girl Scouts across Connecticut," said Turner. "They are influential and inspiring both for the positions they hold and for the work they have done."  

The Women of Achievement event helped raise nearly $40,000 for Girl Scouts of Connecticut's exceptional programs and services for young girls.

The lead sponsors for the event were Cox Radio, Albertus Magnus College, NewAlliance Bank, Webster Bank, and Yale-New Haven Hospital. Proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut's Women of Achievement event will support enrichment, educational, recreational, and personal development programs that help girls in grades K - 12 bring out the best in themselves and their communities.  The Girl Scout Leadership Experience offers girls the lifetime skills they need to discover their personal best; connect with others to build healthy relationships; and take action in their communities to make the world a better place.
