Sherri Scott with award

Sherri Scott (front row, third from left), Director of Donor Services and Administration at the Foundation, was recently recognized as one of the Women of Achievement in our community at the annual YWCA of High Point luncheon, Wednesday, April 27.

Paul Lessard, President, stated, “Our non-profit simply could not be as successful without Sherri Scott.  She is incredibly organized.  She goes to great lengths to make sure to stay abreast of all donors and make sure they are all informed about what is happening at the Foundation.  Her work ethic is legendary.  Her vision for the positive changes to our community are easily communicated with donors and staff alike.  She mentors other women and serves a strong role model for how women can impact our community.  Her work is one of the key reasons our Foundation has grown so rapidly.  She is a mother and wife. I could not be more proud of her and the tremendous work she does here at the Community Foundation.”

Congratulations and thanks to Sherri Scott!

The YWCA hosts the annual Women of Achievement Luncheon, presented by High Point Regional Health System, at High Point Country Club. The “Special TRIAD Event” honors women who are making a difference in their community.

According to the YWCA of High Point press release, a woman of achievement is:

The woman who is always there, often behind the scenes, committed to going “above & beyond.” She is always taking on another project, not for her own glory, but because she sees the need, and steps up to the task. She encourages the group to achieve more than one person ever could and fades back to let the group take the credit. You have often admired and needed her. Now is the time to honor her.

The YWCA presented three award categories:

Emerging Leader – An up and coming role model, age 40 or under, who has demonstrated proficient skill and enthusiastic leadership in a career, family or community setting.

Community Champion – A woman who has devoted many years to making a significant difference for women and the community.

Administrative Support – An individual who provides exceptional support to her employer and is making a difference within her community.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Women’s Resource Center at YWCA of High Point.
