Metro JLLS 2014 Luncheon
This year’s luncheon, chaired by Cindy Batt, Ann Cameron and Katie Price, will honor our feature guest speaker, journalist and author best known for hosting Good Morning America for nearly two decades, Joan Lunden.
Joan Lunden launched her career in journalism in 1975, reporting for Eyewitness News in New York before joining Good Morning America a year later as a feature news and consumer reporter. Joan’s popularity with viewers led to her promotion as co-host with David Hartman. During her time as host of GMA, Joan was named “television’s favorite morning anchor” and interviewed prominent figures such as US Presidents and First Ladies Gerald and Betty Ford, Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, George and Barbara Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Texas Governor George and Laura Bush prior to the 2000 presidential election.
Joan retired from GMA in 1997 and later became host of A&E’s Behind Closed Doors, an on-location, undercover reporter program. Throughout her career, Joan was dedicated to family and civic responsibility, including speaking on behalf of Mothers Against Drunk Driving; advocating for Passport MD, an online personal health record system; and supporting Camp Reveille, a summer weekend getaway for women of all ages. Joan has also authored nine books and been recognized for her tireless work in broadcast and journalism. We are excited to welcome her into our JLLS community as featured speaker for the 2014 luncheon.
Festivities will take place on Thursday, February 20, 2014 at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma invites you to be a part of the celebration as we continue to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Join us as we share the importance of Girl Scouting in the community and thank generous donors like you!
