Leadership for Teen Girls

Guest Post by Tia Dolet

Crittenton Services of Greater Washington’s 124th Anniversary High Tea was a beautiful ceremony that celebrated the accomplishments of local teen girls and the professional women they look up to. Through the Crittenton Leadership Academy, the girls had been preparing for this event for months by learning the fundamentals of hosting, networking, dressing professionally and even table etiquette. In the end, their hard work paid off! I thoroughly enjoyed this year’s High Tea and, as an alumnae of Crittenton’s programs, was so proud of the poise and grace these ladies showed. The crowd was filled with so many professionals from all over the country who came out to support the young ladies of the programs. The highlight of the event of the event was definitely watching the honorees receive their awards.They delivered such powerful speeches and were an inspiration to all in attendance!

Honorees included: Soledad O’Brien (CNN Anchor), Linda Gooden (EVP, Lockheed Martin), Deborah Taylor Tate (ITU Special Envoy and Lauereate for Child Online Protection), and Marlen Esparza (National Boxing Champion and 2012 Olympic Hopeful).

Guest Speaker: Soledad O’Brien
