As they have in past years, delegates who attended Journey 2016, the summer camp for middle school girls founded by the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County, will host a tea to honor five local female leaders in Howard County.
This year’s honorees include Courtney Watson, Mamie Perkins, Joan Webb Scornaienchi, Judge Lenore Gelfman, and Mae Beale.
The honorees were selected by Journey delegates as part of an intensive camp experience that included workshops on self-awareness and decision making and other topics.
Twenty-seven young women attended Journey summer camp in 2016. Over 280 delegates have completed the camp since its start in 2006. We offer our congratulations not only to those women selected as honorees, but also to each of the young women who chose to take part in such a transformative and empowering experience.
This signature program is operated by Maryland Leadership Workshops and supported by a grant from the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County, a fund of the Community Foundation of Howard County.
