Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania (GSHPA) is proud to announce its President and CEO and retired U.S. Navy Two Star Rear Adm. Janet R. Donovan has been selected as an honoree for the Pennsylvania Commission for Women’s sixth annual Female Veterans Day Ceremony.
As part of Women’s History Month in March, the Female Veterans Day Ceremony recognizes women in the commonwealth who have served their country through the military. Selected veterans will be honored for their bravery and service to the nation by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and first lady Frances Wolf at a ceremony and reception on March 31.
Donovan has completed numerous professional development and executive training courses in strategic planning, strategic communication and innovation, coalition-building, finance and accounting, cyber security, risk management and ethics.
As a retired U.S. Navy Two Star Rear Adm. and former Deputy Cmdr. in the Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) of the Navy, Donovan is a model candidate for this honor. Her broad professional background and history with the U.S. Navy spans more than 30 years. She has held many leadership positions throughout her naval career including, but not limited to, attorney, legal advisor, deputy commander and senior mentor. She also has more than 20 years of executive experience in strategy development, talent management and collaboration.
“I am excited and grateful to be selected as an honoree for the Female Veterans Day Ceremony. It has been a privilege to serve my country, and it will be an honor to stand alongside other exceptional female veterans who have also been selected for this recognition,” Donovan said.
