An amazing woman named Juliette Gordon Low started something 101 years ago that continues to serve this great country today. Girl Scouts has helped to shape women such as Sandra Day O’Connor, Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Kathy Ireland, Katie Couric and Nina Armagno, Vandenberg Air Force Base commander.
In fact, there are more than 55 million Girl Scout alumnae who have grown into women and who change the world in big and small ways daily.
On April 22, Girl Scouts honors the “Leaders behind the Leaders,” the millions of volunteers who have guided generations of girls to become women of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place for all of us.
Each year the 6,000 adult members of Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast donate time and talent worth $1 million or more. In San Luis Obispo County alone, there are 594 adults supporting 1,199 girls, helping them to learn and live a timeless promise.
We invite your readers to join us to celebrate Girl Scout Leaders Day on Monday. Thank a Girl Scout volunteer, past or present, for her commitment to an organization that prepares today’s girls to become tomorrow’s business owners, doctors, scientists, athletes, soldiers, artists, teachers and more.
