Girl Scouts Name Dellick ‘Woman of Distinction’

CLEVELAND – The Girl Scouts of North East Ohio will recognize Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick as a “Woman of Distinction” at its annual awards event May 7 at the InterContinental Hotel downtown.

The Girl Scouts of North East Ohio (GSNEO) established the Women of Distinction Award in 2012 to honor females who go beyond to make communities better places to live and work. Ten women are honored each year and selected for their remarkable achievements as business, community, and civic leaders dedicated to supporting opportunities for women and girls.

“Judge Dellick serves as a great role model for young women. She has created many valuable programs for our youth and families and is dedicated to improving lives,” states Donna DeFiore, who nominated Dellick.

Dellick entered private practice in 1984. She became a partner in a Youngstown law firm and was a civil trial lawyer. In 1999, she became a county court judge, where she implemented the first misdemeanant county drug court. Since 2001, Dellick has served as judge of the Mahoning County Juvenile Court, overseeing the administration of the court as well as the detention center. Her administration of the court has been directed to balanced and restorative justice with focused attention to youth accountability and responsibility, public safety and restoration of victims’ rights.
