TAMPA – The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida will honor Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters as one of its 2014 Women of Distinction at a luncheon Tuesday, March 18, at Tampa’s A La Carte Event Pavilion.

Other Women of Distinction include Dotti Groover-Skipper, founder of HeartDance Foundation, dedicated to the restoration of individuals recovering from addiction and sex trade, and leader of both the Tampa Bay ABOLISH Movement and the Sex Trafficking Collaborative of Tampa to help eradicate human trafficking; Molly Crews, president of Tampa Bay National Day of Prayer Council, Inc.; and Nancy Ridenour, a CPA with offices in Clearwater and Tampa and who sits on several not-for-profit boards.

Heather Barrow, founder and executive director of High Risk Hope, a nonprofit that provides support, encouragement, information and resources to women and families who are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, is the 2014 Woman of Promise. Each year this honor is given to a woman under the age of 35.

Born and raised in Pinellas County, Waters has worked in several high-profile positions for Allstate Insurance Company and the Florida legislature, where she served as a state representative and speaker pro tempore. In addition to being an experienced Washington, D.C., and Tallahassee lobbyist, she has facilitated motivational government programs worldwide as a democracy consultant for the International Republican Institute.

A graduate of Florida State University, Waters has served as an adjunct political science professor for the University of South Florida – St. Petersburg and currently serves in the same capacity for Eckerd College. A community activist, Waters has dedicated herself to many community organizations, including her current involvement with: the PEMHS Mental Health Board, the Pinellas County Urban League Board, the Pinellas County Farm Bureau Board, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Advisory Board, the Greater Seminole Chamber of Commerce, the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and membership in the VFW Auxiliary.

The luncheon benefits the nearly 21,000 girls served by Girl Scouts of West Central Florida. Award-winning actress, designer and humanitarian Jane Seymour, who is known for her role as Dr. Michaela Quinn on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” will serve as the luncheon’s keynote speaker.

Tickets for the luncheon can be purchased by visiting www.gswcf.org/wod. General seating tickets are $75 per person; patron-preferred seating tickets (which includes program recognition) are $150 per person. Sponsorships also are available; please contact Terri Costello at 813-262-1688 or tcostello@gswcf.org for more information.
