Submitted by Rebecca Warburton, Organizer of the Paradigm Award Luncheon
The Paradigm Award Luncheon was an amazing event honoring an amazing woman. Nearly 800 business people, family members and friends joined in on the celebration honoring Deborah M. Fretz, President & CEO of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. In her inspiring acceptance speech, Debbie reflected on leadership in business and the community; the importance of goals and dreams; and the difference between what we know and what we don’t. Change what you don’t know and make better what you do.
We also honored eight exceptional women who are the recipients of this year’s Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women. These women are working full time while completing their undergraduate degrees – splitting their time between work, school, and family so that they can be paradigms of success for their children and others.
Lastly, the Philos Brass Quintet of the Curtis Institute of Music gave a wonderful performance – what a treat! And, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Pennsylvania was recognized as the recipient of the Paradigm Award Gift.
To borrow from Debbie – it was sensational!
