“It is important to me to support organizations that empower women and enhance a sense of community,” said Melissa Smith, WEX president, The Americas. “The Girl Scouts of Maine does an exceptional job of encouraging young women to recognize and reach their full potential and I am incredibly honored to receive this recognition.”

The 16 th annual “Woman of Distinction” award is presented by Girl Scouts of Maine, a statewide non-profit organization promoting the personal development of local girls, to honor a Maine woman who has distinguished herself as an outstanding member of her community through individual excellence and a high level of achievement. Past recipients of the award include Senator Olympia Snowe and Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson.

“We are thrilled to name Melissa as this year’s ‘Woman of Distinction’,” said Joan McDonald, CEO of Girl Scouts of Maine. “Her strong leadership skills, accomplished career path and dedication to the local community serve as a wonderful example to the young women of Maine.”

Smith currently serves on the Center for Grieving Children's board of directors, is a co-founder of the Executive Women's Forum, volunteers for the Maine Cancer Foundation's Tri for a Cure, and helped to create sheJAMs, an organization bringing together women of all ages and abilities who enjoy being active.
