Two local students among finalists for Young Women of Distinction Award

By on April 15, 2019

Erika Dick from Churchville-Chili High School and Alyssa Libonati from Spencerport High School are among 20 finalists for the annual Young Women of Distinction Award presented by the Women’s Council, a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce affiliate. The scholarship program supports the Women’s Council’s belief that young women with promise today will become tomorrow’s leaders.

Modeled after the ATHENA Award, the program is designed to discover high school seniors who have displayed outstanding leadership, academic excellence, and involvement in the nine-county Rochester and Finger Lakes region.

Four top recipients, one each from the Rochester City School District, Monroe County east, Monroe County west, and the eight regional counties surrounding Monroe, receive a $2,500 scholarship.

The Women’s Council will recognize the finalists at a celebration on Monday, May 6 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at The Strathallan Rooftop.
