Tammi Thomas Chosen for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland’s Distinguished Women Awards





Chief Development and Marketing Officer of TEDCO chosen for the Distinguished Women Awards

COLUMBIA, Md. (March 6, 2024) – The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland selected Tammi Thomas, TEDCO’s Chief Development and Marketing Officer, as one of five women chosen for their annual Distinguished Women Awards. These awards celebrate local professional women leaders who are making an impact in the business world and their communities.

“For the duration of my time with TEDCO, Tammi has continually been an exemplar of TEDCO’s mission and core values,” said Troy LeMaile-Stovall, TEDCO CEO. “Her recognition by the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland is well-deserved.”

As part of the award, honorees share professional insights with a high school aged Girl Scout as they shadow the honoree for a day. This experience provides Girl Scouts with mentors and career exploration while boosting their self-confidence and offering leadership opportunities. Each of the shadow Girl Scouts retell their experiences at the awards ceremony, which is a highlight of the event.

Thomas welcomed shadow Girl Scout Shreya Dinesh to the TEDCO headquarters Wednesday, February 21, 2024. Throughout the day, Dinesh had the opportunity to sit in on meetings about TEDCO, interact with TEDCO employees from various departments, and even attend an event with the WTCI CEO council.

“Tammi is always seeking out ways to uplift women leaders and entrepreneurs and support others throughout their personal and professional journeys,” said Cassy Haber, TEDCO’s associate director, Marketing and Communications. “It comes as no surprise that she was chosen to be one of the Girl Scouts’ 2024 Distinguished Women given the countless ways she has encouraged women leaders in our community – from nominations for leadership programs and regional and national award recognitions, to making connections for entrepreneurs to support the growth of their businesses. And on top of it all she consistently shows up for her team, provides new opportunities for growth, and continually creates a system of support.”

The awardees will be honored April 18 at The Center Club in Baltimore, Md. The event is a networking fundraiser that supports Girl Scouts’ programming which aims to develop the next generation of women leaders. Tickets and additional information about each of the honorees can be found here.
