Distinguished Young Women of Michigan

Posted By: Pat Hermatz (June 28, 2019)
Distinguished Young Women is a unique scholarship program that inspires high school girls to develop their full, individual potential through a fun, transformative experience that culminates in a celebratory showcase of their accomplishments. In addition, through our Life Skills program, which includes workshops and online resources, participants learn skills like interviewing, public speaking, self-confidence building and much more. These skills not only prepare everyone for our program but also for the world after high school as they enter college and beyond. Distinguished Young Women of Michigan generates it's scholarships through fundraising efforts and donations from companies and individuals. I am currently the Co-Director of the Michigan State Program and have been involved as a volunteer, promoter, supporter of the program for over 25 years. I have witnessed thousands of young women grow and mature through their participation in the program.
