Rising senior Isabel Kagoo '21 will be honored Friday by the City of Memphis Office of Business and Compliance with a Girl Who Means Business Award.
Girls Who Mean Business honors Memphis-area high school girls to recognize their academic, service and extracurricular accomplishments, nurture their career aspirations, equip them with a mentor who is an empowered Memphis businesswoman and invest in their future as leaders.
Schools select one student per school to be named to the 2020 Girls Who Mean Business. A one-page testimonial must be written and submitted by a teacher, guidance counselor or another school official that addresses why the student was selected. The student must answer a questionnaire to complete her nomination.
Winners of the award are female high school students who exemplify excellence in school involvement, both academically and in extracurricular endeavors, as well as in community service and other ways they go above and beyond on a daily basis. The girls will have access to four days of virtual educational programming followed by mentoring sessions from top businesswomen in the city. This outreach will provide the girls with a post-graduate leg up, with the tools they need to achieve, key contacts, advice and stellar role modeling.
Kagoo becomes the second Lausanne student to receive this honor. Madeline Culbreth received the award last year.
