Girl Scouts impacted my life immensely! I loved everything about Girl Scouts, beginning as a brownie and rising to an assistant leader, to having my own daughter become a Girl Scout. The class photo is of me as a junior Girl Scout, along with my daughter when she was the same age I was in the photo. The G.S. lessons I learned have assisted me throughout my life…being prepared, leaving a place better than you find it, working hard to become the only woman in my graduating class to earn an engineering degree. Incredible G.S. memories for me included: summer and winter camping, making colonial costumes for our country’s Bicentennial, putting on a drama production of the Mikado, discovering s’mores, and celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting with my own Girl Scout daughter! May Girl Scouting continue to evolve and provide such a great foundation for future leaders.
