Girls Scouts honor local women

March 6, 2003

Albany - Three Albany women were honored tonight as "Women of Distinction" by the Girls Scouts of Southwest Georgia.

Wilhelmina Hall and sisters Anna Louise and Bee McCormack were recognized for their dedication to and volunteer work in the community. Troop leaders say the women are the kind of leaders after whom Scouts should model themselves.

"I came along, I think, at a sort of opportune time to be asked to serve on committee's and boards and I I've enjoyed it very much and probably, I hope, as a sort of role model for what Girl Scouts can do and become," Hall said.

Dinner Chairperson Stacey Wernick couldn't agree more. "That's what the Girls Scouts is all about - is people that grow up and help their community and give to others and we just want the Girl Scouts to see what hard work does -- it pays off," she said.

The annual awards dinner raises money for the Girl Scouts.
