The Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains honored Frenship ISD Superintendent Dr. Michelle McCord as one of four Lubbock area Women of Distinction honorees during the organization’s annual banquet Tuesday night at the Lubbock Country Club.
McCord was named the recipient of the 2018 Connect Award, a distinction that honors a woman who demonstrates exceptional leadership in connecting with others to create solutions in the community and beyond to make the world a better place.
“Dr. McCord is a strong community leader who just happens to be a woman,” said Becky Burton, CEO of the Girls Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains. “She has vowed to find solutions and collaborations to better protect women and children.”
Along with her leadership role at Frenship ISD, McCord currently serves as co-chair of the new Women United committee of the Lubbock Area United Way. Women United is a dynamic group of business women and community leaders driven to create a stronger community by defining problems and inviting women to be part of the solution. Focusing on women’s philanthropy, advocacy, volunteerism, mentoring and leadership is the work of Women United.
The Girl Scouts Women of Distinction program brings together and recognizes a group of purpose-driven, women leaders in business, government and philanthropy who are dedicated to service and leadership.
