Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey will honor several local women at
the 34th Annual Women of Achievement event on March 30, 2017, from
5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at The Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park.
The Women of Achievement awards gala honors individuals from local
communities who have made outstanding contributions in their careers
or personal lives, serve as positive role models, and exemplify the
values of Girl Scouting.
The annual gala features an extended cocktail reception, 50/50
raffle and silent auction. Guests from area corporations and the
community-at-large are welcome to help honor these women by attending
the event, placing an ad in the tribute journal, or volunteering as an
event committee member
Proceeds from Women of Achievement provide financial assistance to
girls in need, especially within GSNNJ’s urban areas, who without help
would not receive the benefits of Girl Scouting.

Michele Powers is News 12 New Jersey's Weekend Meteorologist.
Michele was born and raised here in NJ and loves forecasting for all
her family and friends. She has always been fascinated by the weather
and that's one of the reasons why she decided to pursue meteorology as
a career. She credits her love of both meteorology and astronomy to
her mom. As a young child she wanted to be an astronaut and fly the
Space Shuttle. Growing up watching a cable station called The Weather
Channel also had something to do with her interest, too.
She started as a freelance meteorologist for News 12 back in 2002
and officially became part of the News 12 NJ Weather Team in 2005.
Michele earned her NWA Seal of Approval in 2009.
