Michele Thomas receives Woman of Distinction Award from GSCB

November 3, 2022 - Susan Purnell of the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Advisory Council recently presented Michele Thomas with its Woman of Distinction Award. According to the Girl Scouts, "a Woman of Distinction is an influential leader in her industry and community - someone who, through her deeds and actions, exemplifies the leadership ideals found in Girl Scouting. She is a role model for area girls and young women, who inspires today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders." The award - actually for the year 2020 - was only recently presented to Thomas due to delays from the pandemic.

Thomas works for The Bank of Delmarva, as Vice President - Residential Mortgage Division, and has volunteered in the community for many organizations, including Lower Shore Enterprises, Village of Hope, Salisbury University Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and more. Thomas has been recognized multiple times professionally, as Best Banker on the Eastern Shore by the Metropolitan Magazine.
