2014 Success to Significance Luncheon

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) will host its 2014 Success to Significance Luncheon on Friday, April 25, 2014 at the Hilton Americas-Houston. The event recognizes local leaders who have used their success to make a significant difference in the community and the future of girls.

This year's Success to Significance honorees are Steve and Joan Gilliland and Sherry Williams. Steve and Joan are being honored for their longstanding volunteerism with GSSJC. Steve has previously served on a number of Council committees as well as the board of directors. He currently is a member of the Girl Scouts of the USA Board of Directors. Joan has made a notable impact through her leadership with GSSJC’s community outreach program at the Center for Success and Independence.

Sherry Williams, a senior VP and chief ethics and compliance officer at Halliburton, is being honored for building a tremendous career and serving as an example to girls that no matter where you come from, you can achieve anything through hard work and leadership.

The event's keynote speaker is Pegine Echevarria. A former Bronx girl gang member, Pegine will share her story of how Girl Scouts and her mentor saved her life as a teen. She is one of only eight females in the Motivational Speakers Hall of Fame and the only Latina.

Proceeds from Success to Significance support Girl Scout programs that enable more girls to "dream big" and achieve their goals.
