The annual Lt. Governor’s Leadership Luncheon will honor three accomplished and well-known women while celebrating the values that exemplify Girl Scouts.

One of the honorees is Dr. Sue Ellspermann, currently the president of Ivy Tech Community College and no stranger to the luncheon as former Lt. Governor to Mike Pence. Ellspermann created charming introduction videos in her office with Girl Scouts, and of course, Girl Scout cookies. Dr. Ellspermann is the first female president of the nation’s largest singly accredited statewide community college system.

Another honoree is the Honorable Maggie Lewis, president of the Indianapolis City-County Council and representative for Indianapolis/Marion County’s 10th District. Like Ellspermann, Lewis is the first woman to hold her position as president of the City-County Council. She currently works in support of public relations at Centaur, Inc.

The third honoree is Karen Jung, currently president of the non-profit Nextech and known for her work at ExactTarget and the ExactTarget Foundation. As the Foundation’s executive director, Jung developed innovative new programs to engage people, technology and resources to address childhood hunger, education and entrepreneurship.

“We are delighted to honor these outstanding women,” said Deborah Hearn Smith, CEO of Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. “They each exemplify the values that Girl Scouts instills in girls’ lives that build leaders in all fields.”

The luncheon is chaired by Anne Shane and will focus on the STEM education provided to Girl Scouts. Each year, more than 10,000 central Indiana Girl Scouts receive hands-on STEM education opportunities through the organization.

The event will be held October 25th at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Registration for tickets is open.
