For an evening refreshing as a Thin Mint cookie, about 65 teen Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay recently gathered at the Hotel DuPont to celebrate the 16th Annual Women of Distinction dinner.

Health and medicine were the theme of the night. The Girl Scouts recognized Rita Landgraf, secretary of the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, as the 2015 Woman of Distinction. They also honored the legacy of Katherine “Kitty” Esterly, M.D., with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was announced before her passing in December, and the President and Chief Executive Officer of Christiana Care Health System, Dr. Janice Nevin, accepted the award in Esterly’s memory.

Nevin, the first female president and CEO of Christiana, and Carol Ammon, the retired CEO and chairwoman of Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc., were honorary chairwomen of the event.

Throughout the night, Girl Scouts served in various leadership roles, including Mistress of Ceremonies, greeters, vocalists and participants in the flag ceremony. Before the dinner, they asked questions and had a discussion with expert panelists about healthcare careers.
