Beth Hilton, executive director of the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce, was one of the Women of Distinction honored at the 100th Anniversary Gala sponsored by Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways.
The organization honored a total of 100 women, men and organizations in central New York “who inspire girls to achieve and lead,” according to NYPENN Pathways.
The event, which was held March 12 at the Syracuse OnCenter, celebrated 100 years of Girl Scouting.
“I am truly honored to receive such recognition,” Hilton said. “As a former Girl Scout as well as the mother of a pre-teen girl, it is important to me that I strive to always be a good role model simply by following many of the principles that I learned as a young woman growing up and are reinforced through the Girl Scouts as part of the Girl Scout Law.”
Hilton, an Oswego native, has served as the chamber’s executive director since May 2009. Previously, she was the general manager of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers in South Carolina.
