Women of Distinction

Over the years we have honored more than 300 women who have distinguished themselves through their leadership and extraordinary contributions to their community and, most importantly, by exemplifying the Girl Scout mission as women of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We hold two ceremonies each year in our council: one to honor women in Southern New Mexico, and one for women in the Permian Basin area of West Texas.

The proceeds from these events allow GSDSW to provide scholarships, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE), enhance our four priority program areas: Financial Literacy, Healthy Living, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and Outdoor Leadership, and support various Girl Scout activities and programs for Girl Scouts throughout Southern New Mexico and West Texas.
