Girl Scouts recognizes Tiffany McBride with Woman of Distinction Award
The Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia honored Auburn University instructor Tiffany McBride in the School of Communication & Journalism with its Women of Distinction Award, given to women who reflect the values of the Girl Scouts. The award recognizes exceptional women who have made significant contributions to their communities and beyond.
“Being a Woman of Distinction is an honor and a responsibility,” said McBride. “I try to make sure that in my position as a lecturer here at Auburn that I am always living by the Auburn Creed and making the university a better place as well as the community here and within the region.”
The Women of Distinction Award recipients serve as role models for girls and women of all ages, demonstrating the power of determination and perseverance. McBride uses this award as an opportunity to show that hard work and dedication can go a long way.
“Role models can represent and help to expand what is possible and at times reaffirm a young girl's dreams and aspirations,” said McBride. “My hope is that as a role model for young girls, they can see someone who looks like them succeed and become all that they can be and more.”
The Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia selects recipients who exemplify the importance of leadership, philanthropy and advocacy. McBride implements these values into her role as a lecturer through encouragement and leadership.
“When my students feel as if an assignment is too hard or difficult to achieve, I make sure that I highlight their skill set and focus on what they have already achieved,” said McBride. “I attempt to encourage them on every hand while they are working by telling my students they are capable of anything they put their minds to.”
McBride also serves as the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion chair in the School of Communication & Journalism.
