2006 Women of Distinction

The Pioneer Valley Girl Scouts have announced their honorees for Women of Distinction 2006. This annual honor goes to local women who are outstanding in their fields or endeavors, have no fear of tackling difficult issues and act as important role models for youth, especially girls. The 2006 Women of Distinction are (counter clockwise starting from left) Marilyn Spedding, Education; Dr. Mary Anne Herron, Philanthropy; Nancy Urbschat, Business; Vera Baker, The Arts; and Sr. Mary T. Quinn, Quality of Life. The quintet will be officially recognized with a reception/dinner on March 9 in Agawam. Girl Scouts of Pioneer Valley Director of Development Diane Barnes last week introduced the honorees at the home of Bay Path College President Carol Leary.
