Girls Inc. honors inspirational women

August 28, 2007

Albany--  Some influential women were honored Tuesday night by the girls who look up to them.

Successful women from Dougherty and Terrell counties were part of the 13th annual Girls Incorporated Committee of 100 Dinner.

The women are role models and represent the organization's theme of Girl Power. That message is instilled in hundreds of young women every year.

"It's important that girls have programming where they can learn about themselves and how to cope with the different things that are going on, how to develop themselves as young ladies, as young women, and to go on to achieve those goals," said Girls Inc. Executive Director LaKisha Bryant.

Some women were inducted into the Millennium Club. They have been members for 10 years.
