Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) recognized two North Central Phoenix residents who have modeled the Girl Scout promise and law in their work and their lives with its Promise Award at the 2014 Women & Young Women of Distinction luncheon, held Nov. 15 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort.

This year’s Promise Awardees include Judy Jolley Mohraz and Harry Papp. Mohraz is the first president and CEO of the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, and now a Trustee. She furthered the vision of Virginia G. Piper and built a vibrant foundation supporting arts and culture, children, education, healthcare, older adults and religious organizations throughout Maricopa County.

Papp, the managing director of L. Roy Papp & Associates, is a dedicated servant whose charitable endeavors touch every sector of the community, including the Phoenix Zoo, Arizona State University, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and GSACPC. With two daughters of his own, he is passionate about expanding and providing opportunities to all girls.

Other honorees are outstanding girls and women who are paving the way to a brighter future through their leadership and service to the community. They also share a common bond: their values and leadership got started through being a Girl Scout.

In partnership with more than 11,000 adult volunteers, GSACPC serves 24,000 girls grades k-12 in more than 90 communities across central and northern Arizona. Since 1936, GSACPC has helped girls develop leadership skills and tools for success in a rapidly changing environment. For more information, visit
