Northfield, NH – Spaulding Youth Center was delighted to celebrate with Girls Inc. of New Hampshire at the organization’s 15th Annual Women of Achievement Brunch. The Annual Women of Achievement Brunch honors the remarkable accomplishments of women who serve as role models for girls everywhere, inspiring them to achieve in school and beyond.

This year, Girls Inc. of New Hampshire honored many of the Women of Achievement award winners over the past 15 years. Susan C. Ryan, President & CEO of Spaulding Youth Center, proudly attended the event as a former chair of the Girls Inc. of New Hampshire board of directors as well as a 2013 Women of Achievement award recipient. She continues to be an inspiration and role model to girls every day at Spaulding and across the state of New Hampshire.

The event also celebrated the long term and impactful tenure of Cathy Duffy Cullity, CEO of Girls Inc. of New Hampshire. Ms. Cullity will soon be retiring from the organization after advocating and educating the girls of New Hampshire for 23 years.

“On behalf of Spaulding, I was thrilled to attend this wonderful event that celebrated so many inspirational women in NH, including young women and girls. It was especially meaningful to honor Cathy and all she and the Girls Inc. organization has done for vulnerable girls.” said Susan C. Ryan. “The Girls Inc. experience is focused on empowering girls to succeed – to be strong, smart and bold. Girls Inc. of New Hampshire has been a great friend to Spaulding Youth Center, and we are thrilled to offer their impactful and relatable programming on our campus every week.”

Spaulding Youth Center offers the Girls Inc. Mind+Body program as one of our many after‐school activities. This comprehensive program encourages girls 11 to 18 years old to strive towards being healthy and feeling better about their bodies, which results in higher levels of self-esteem and confidence in their abilities.
