More than 75 women gathered in Guerrieri Academic Commons at Salisbury University Nov. 1 for the latest event in The Daily Record’s Path to Excellence networking series.

The women were there to share and celebrate the connections that have shaped and advanced their careers. The event was held in conjunction with the most recent issue of Path to Excellence magazine, which focused on how women are reshaping the field of philanthropy.

Dr. Karen Olmstead, Salisbury University interim provost and vice president of academic affairs, welcomed the gathering.

The nonprofit beneficiaries of the event were Village of Hope, which offers a transitional home for women and children struggling with homelessness, and Diakonia, which provides shelter, food, clothing and the resources to families on the Lower Shore.

Co-hosts for the evening were Top 100 Women Dr. Janet Dudley-Eschbach, president of Salisbury University; Kathleen Momme, executive director of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore; Dr. Veronique Diriker, director of development at University of Maryland, Eastern Shore; Sandy Fitzgerald-Angello, vice president of Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury; Susan Purnell,   owner of Kuhn’s Jewelers; and Alexis Dashield, the former president of the Fruitland Community Center.

The 2017 networking series sponsors are Keswick and Executive Alliance and the event sponsor was Salisbury University.

The Daily Record will hold six Path to Excellence networking events across Maryland in 2018, each of them associated with issues of the magazine. Details on time and locations will be published on the Path to Excellence page of TheDailyRecord.com.
