Girl Scouts of Maine is pleased to announce that it will honor Elizabeth Sutherland, of Sutherland Weston, with the 2017 Juliette Award at the Eighth Annual Pearls of Wisdom Celebration on September 14, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn, Bangor.

Juliette Gordon Low was a woman who exhibited a heightened sense of service to community and the courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.

“Today’s girls are our future leaders. A crucial element in a girl’s success is a positive role model,” said Joanne Crepeau, CEO, Girl Scouts of Maine. “Elizabeth’s impressive career path and her drive to succeed helps to inspire girls to believe in themselves and take on new experiences throughout their lives.”

Sutherland is a partner at Sutherland Weston Marketing Communications in Bangor, one of the top ten advertising agencies in Maine. Originally from “The County,” after college Sutherland worked for the United States Senate, the American Red Cross, and Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems in increasingly complex public relations and marketing roles before launching out on her own in 2003.

Sutherland is a graduate of the Bangor Region Leadership Institute and she serves in leadership roles for a variety of organizations, including All Saints Catholic School, Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, and the United Way of Eastern Maine.

When not at work, Sutherland is also an avid cyclist, reader, would-be runner, mother of two boys and wife to a radio-talk-show host.
