Meyer Nominated as Woman of Distinction

Each year, the Professional Women of the Finger Lakes organization nominates a select group of women from the community who exemplify leadership and dedication to the area for the Women of Distinction Awards. This year, Community Outreach Coordinator for the Finger Lakes Institute Sarah Meyer was among those honored with a nomination for Professional Achievement.

“It was a great event,” says Meyer, who was nominated for the award by Katie Flowers, director of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning. “I was honored to be recognized alongside such outstanding women.”

“I have had the privilege of working with Sarah since 2004. She is thoughtful, articulate, and compassionate about the students she advises and environmental issues that affect Geneva and the surrounding areas,” says Flowers.  “She is respected by those with whom she collaborates, and admired by her students and colleagues. “

The awards dinner, which took place on Wednesday, Feb. 8 in Canandaigua and featured keynote speaker CEO of Dixon Schwabl Advertising Lauren Dixon, highlighted the women who have made a significant impact on the Finger Lakes region. One of the goals of the Women of Distinction Awards is to “help increase the notoriety of the women in the Finger Lakes Region who exemplify true leadership and civic responsibility.”
