Meet Eleanor Park - 2011 Woman of Distinction

As an independent marketing director for Team National, a direct selling organization, Eleanor Park helps members develop home-based businesses that provide savings in 20 different industries through group buying power.

One of her proudest professional accomplishments was the implementation of the Marengo County Emergency Communications System District E911; she later served as its coordinator and executive director. Park has served as president of the Alabama Association of Public Safety Communications Officials and is a member and past president of the Demopolis Pilot Club.

Park earned her degree in elementary education at ­Livingston University and her certificate as a Certified Nurse Assistant at Marengo County Technology Center.

Park has dedicated her time and talents to the Girl Scouts as a lifelong member, troop leader, River City Service Unit Manager and program aide for younger troops. She continues to recruit adult volunteers in the community and has also served on the board of the former Tombigbee Girl Scout Council. “Girl Scouting has taught me that having integrity is the best quality,” she states.

Park will be honored at the West Alabama Women of Distinction Luncheon on April 7. For more information, visit www.girlscoutsnca.org/wodwest.
