Two Carrollton Women to be Honored

Carrollton Ga -- Carrollton resident and CEO of The Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, Missy Dugan told WLBB radio about how humbling it is to be identified as one of 20 women making a difference in their communities, blazing trails for others and leaving an indelible mark on the Atlanta business community. Another Carrollton woman made the list whom Dugan sees as a mentor.   

Dugan and recently appointed Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Brenda Fitzgerald will be recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle during a ceremony in October, as "Women Who Mean Business" in 2017.

Dugan said, "To be able to be honored with her is extremely humbling because I have held her in high regard for my entire career. I was actually able to participate in her bid in 1994 for congress. So she means the world to me. I cannot be more proud to sit on the stage with her."

Dugan has been President and CEO of The Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta since 2007 and is the only female to ever hold that position.

"My belief is that when you do great quality work that is for a purpose and it is driven towards that purpose that, it's not about me but it's about the goals that we achieve in the organization and for the organization. So I kind of look at it as I should be treated like anyone else doing this job as long as I'm doing it to the best of the ability, to get kids what they need."

Carrollton will be well represented with Dugan and Fitzgerald at the Atlanta Business Chronicle's awards reception, which is to be held on October 19th in Atlanta.
