The Ladies of Excellence program at Aldine High School Ninth Grade emphasis is on improving self-esteem through team building, classes on etiquette and dress, career tours and encouraging responsibility.
Over 100 students in the Ladies of Distinction program meet for monthly seminars. Each class of young women in the program has followed a tradition of performing over 6,000 aggregate hours of community services.
Proceeds from the Women on the Move® Luncheon funds not only mentoring programs, they also provide scholarships for mentees graduating from high school to attend a university, junior college, vocational or career education schools. Established in 1998 and named to honor Jackie Greer, founder of the mentoring program and 1985 Women on the Move, these scholarships have allowed many young women to pursue career options that may not be possible otherwise. Texas Executive Women is proud to have funded over $235,000 in scholarships over the years.
