The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council
Inspiring women of all ages at the Success to Significance Luncheon.
For more than a century, the Girl Scouts have been the premier leadership organization for young girls, striving to eliminate barriers and create a society in which every girl has the opportunity to achieve her full potential. As a woman-owned business, it’s always an exceptional moment when we have the opportunity to work with inspiring women leaders who have done incredible things in their lives and careers. Every year, the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council brings keynote speakers to their annual Success to Significance luncheon who will inspire, motivate and excite their guests. This year’s keynote, Girl Scout alum and decorated military veteran, Admiral Michelle J. Howard, is no exception.
In 1999, Admiral Michelle Howard made history as the first African American woman to command a ship in the Navy. In addition to receiving countless awards, Admiral Howard is also the first African American woman to reach the rank of three and four-stars in the Armed Forces. After serving 35 years in the United States Navy, she retired with her last command ranging from 2016 to 2017 at the U.S. Naval Forces Europe and U.S. Naval Forces Africa. She simultaneously led NATO’s Allied Joint Force Command Naples with oversight of missions from the Western Balkans to Iraq. Operations in her career include: NATO peacekeeping west African training cruise; Indonesia tsunami relief operations; and the rescue of Maersk Alabama from Somali pirates. She is such a wonderful role model for young girls as well as an inspiration to women of all ages and her stories presented at the 2019 Success to Significance luncheon impacted hundreds of guests in the best way possible.
As a Production Partner for the Success to Significance Luncheon, VISION is proud to work with this incredible organization doing amazing things to inspire the next generation of women leaders.
