Business & Professional Women (BPW) Langley is proud to congratulate one of our Charter Members, Mary Reeves on her nomination for the 2016 YWCA Women of Distinction Awards in the category of Non-Profit. I have known Mary since I was in my 20’s (so a very long time) and she has always been an inspiration to others and particularly to me. I admire her courage and grit. As the article states “Mary epitomizes values-based leadership”. She is a true visionary and absolutely passionate about helping people reach their full potential in every walk of life. It is a true honour to have her on our BPW Langley team. Let’s cheer her on!
Here’s the full article about her from the Metro Vancouver YWCA website:
A community-minded leader with a fierce passion for helping people to reach their full potential, Mary Reeves, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley (BBBSL), cultivates leaders in her community. Under Mary’s leadership, BBBSL has risen to the top 10% of BBBS member agencies, fulfilling its mission to provide young people with the highest quality, volunteer-based mentorship programs. Mary’s vision has led BBBSL to build relationships and formalize partnerships with mayors and councils, MPs, businesses, public service organizations and schools. While sitting on the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, Mary initiated its first Non-Profit Committee, where she connected local organizations and led educational workshops. With decades of experience leading community-based initiatives, Mary epitomizes values-based leadership.
