The Women’s Council, a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce affiliate, presented its annual Young Women of Distinction Awards to Annabelle Carney of Pavilion Central School, Lauren Cody of Honeoye Falls-Lima High School, Alyssa Libonati of Spencerport High School, and Karenna Thomas of Wilson Magnet High School. 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. 

Erika Dick of Churchville-Chili High School was also among the group of finalists for the 2019 Young Women of Distinction Award.
