Honoring Success at the Girl Scouts Women of Distinction Breakfast

Louis Gregory Rice brings nearly three decades’ investment banking and hedge fund experience to Kellner Capital, a New York-based alternative asset firm, according to public filings. Together with his wife Melissa, Louis Gregory Rice contributes to various youth-development organizations such as the Girl Scouts of Greater New York.

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York serves more than 29,000 youth throughout all five boroughs by providing not only opportunities for camaraderie and stewardship, but also access to invaluable educational programs in STEM, business, and entrepreneurship. As a result, Girl Scout alumnae are more likely to go on to pursue higher education, commit to community service, and exhibit higher self-confidence. However, these accomplishments are only possible through the support of dedicated volunteers, which is why the Girl Scouts of Greater New Yok has hosted the Women of Distinction Breakfast on founder Juliette Low’s birthday for the past 22 years.

On October 28, 2015, the Women of Distinction Breakfast will commemorate the accomplishments of women who have served as positive role-models and leaders and announce the recipient of the Future Woman of Distinction Award, which is provided to one Ambassador Girl Scout along with a college scholarship. In addition, this year’s breakfast will debut the inaugural Advancing Women of Distinction Award, which will honor companies that have demonstrated a commitment in closing the gender leadership gap and promoting professional opportunities for women.
