Murthy to Receive Outstanding Director Award10 Jan 2013
Murthy Law Firm founder and president, Sheela Murthy, will receive an Outstanding Director Award from the Baltimore Business Journal (BBJ), honoring her exceptional service as a longtime board member – and board chair – of the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. According to the BBJ, the award honors outstanding “directors of nonprofits, public and private companies, who have demonstrated the leadership and skills needed to help guide their businesses’ success and future.”
Murthy is among the first honorees to receive this new award, which will be presented at BBJ‘s gala awards dinner on March 7th. Nominated for the award by Traci Barnett, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland (GSCM), Murthy was selected for the many years of exemplary leadership she has provided as a member of GSCM’s board. Since 2010, Murthy has served as Chair of GSCM’s Board of Directors, the highest volunteer position in the organization.
The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland serve nearly 28,000 girls in Baltimore city and five surrounding counties, with programs that develop their leadership skills in a supportive environment that promotes good values and integrity of character. Sheela Murthy has given generously to GSCM of her time, talents, and treasure, because she is deeply committed to its core mission: empowering girls and young women with the skills and confidence they need to succeed in life and become the leaders of tomorrow.
These habits of charity and public service – of giving back to the community – are deeply ingrained in Ms. Murthy – lessons her parents instilled in her early, when she was growing up in India. This ethos of public service to organizations in India and her adopted home in the U.S. infuses every aspect of the Murthy Law Firm and its charitable wing, the MurthyNAYAK Foundation. We appreciate Sheela’s exemplary generosity, and offer warm congratulations from everyone at the law firm on this well-deserved award!
