Binghamton, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways recognized two local women Tuesday night who have made significant contributions to their professions and communities.

The 15th annual Broome County Women of Distinction celebration was held Tuesday night.

Two women were honored - Lillian Levy and Patricia Ingraham.

Levy is a partner at Hinman, Howard and Kattell, and she has worked in the community serving on various boards.

Levy recognizes her experience as a Girl Scout helped her lead and play a bigger role in her community.

"I think the great thing about the Girl Scouts is that it has evolved. It's an organization that stays current with social trends and offers amazing things for young women today," Levy said.

Patricia Ingraham is recently retired. She was the founding Dean of the College of Community and Public Affairs at Binghamton University and a former Distinguished Professor of Public Administration at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University.

WBNG’s Candace Chapman was the emcee of the event. The ceremony included a Girl Scouts recognition, dinner and awards presentation.
