The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida will honor six women at its 2018 Women of Distinction Luncheon in March: Lissette Campos, Chloe Firebaugh, Stephanie Goforth, Sallie Parks, Fentrice D. Driskell and Liana Fernandez Fox.

The organization made the announcement earlier this month. The media release hailed the honorees for success in their chosen fields and serving as inspiring role models for girls in the local community. Each woman exemplifies ethical leadership and commitment to making a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service.

Campos, the WFTS-Ch. 28 community affairs director, Firebaugh, the M/I Homes of Tampa director of land acquisition, Goforth, the Northern Trust West Florida Region president and Parks, a former Pinellas County Commissioner, will be honored as the 2018 Women of Distinction. Driskell, an Harvard-educated attorney and shareholder at Carlton Fields, has been named the 2018 Woman of Promise.

Fox, a past Woman of Distinction recipient, will be inducted into Women of Distinction Hall of Fame.

The 27th annual Women of Distinction Luncheon is planned for noon on March 8 at the Hilton Downtown Tampa.

Award-winning journalist, documentarian, news anchor, and producer Soledad O’Brien will serve as the luncheon’s keynote speaker.
