Ximena Moreno, an intern in Baptist’s system community involvement department, was one of 27 high school students named to the Memphis Business Journal’s (MBJ) first “Girls Who Mean Business” class.

The program recognizes standout Mid-South girls who are making a difference in their schools and communities. They were honored at an awards luncheon and attended a mentorship session, where they were paired with local businesswomen.

According to the MBJ, “These girls are leaders, determined to have a positive impact on the people and places that surround them.”

Girls Who Mean Business will help build a network of support and advice that can nurture the girls’ professional aspirations and show them the post-secondary education opportunities available in Memphis.

Students were selected by their schools’ faculty and administration.
