Gaynor Yancey, associate dean for baccalaureate studies has been selected as a 2007 Woman of Distinction by the Girl Scouts Bluebonnet Council.

Nominations include women from a variety of backgrounds who exemplify lives of service, achievement and leadership, and who serve as excellent role models for young women.

The Women of Distinction Banquet will be held in Waco in April. Funds raised from the banquet will be used locally to support Girl Scout programs for at-risk and low-income girls in the community. These programs help young girls develop self-esteem, self-reliance, leadership abilities and teamwork skills, according to the Girl Scouts Bluebonnet Council Web site.
