GIRL SCOUTS HORNETS’ NEST COUNCIL CEO RECOGNIZED AS A 2015 50 MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMAN

Angela Woods Leads Women of Distinction Annual Event

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 29, 2015)Angela Woods, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council, will be recognized tonight, Friday, May 29 by The Mecklenburg Times as a 2015 50 Most Influential Woman.

It’s her influence on more than 22,000 girls and adults in eight North Carolina and South Carolina counties that demonstrate Woods’ passion for the community.

“It is truly humbling to be recognized as a 50 Most Influential Woman, especially when you consider the incredible impact many of the women had on Charlotte,” said Woods. “But, I hope my legacy is left with the next generation of female entrepreneurs and leaders that are inspired, cultivated and motivated to change the world through Girl Scouts.”

With more than 17 years of combined nonprofit and for-profit leadership, Woods will join 49 other influential women tonight at the Hilton Charlotte Center City for the seventh annual awards program. The 50 Most Influential Women event was created to spotlight and recognize the important role women play in the greater Charlotte region, in the economy and in society. The honorees represent the most influential women in business, government, education and not-for-profit fields.

Following this recognition, Woods will be focused on the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council’s Women of Distinction luncheon. Working closely with a distinguished group of community leaders, the Girl Scouts will recognize outstanding women who reflect the mission of Girl Scouts and have made significant achievements in its program focus areas.

Slated for Sept. 9 at the Westin Charlotte, the annual event will celebrate its 10th anniversary, honoring nearly 60 women leaders over the past decade.
