Girl Scout Memories (Previous Issue 2)

Girl Scout Greats

Girl Scout Greats come from all walks of life: inspirational volunteers, business and political rainmakers, scientists and inventors, devoted parents, and celebrities pursuing their dreams. They all have this in common: they’re Girl Scouts, just like you.

Oregon Frontier Pioneer

Just as my ancestors blazed a trail across the Oregon Trail, expanding the United States to the nation's western shore, Girl Scouts gives girls the opportunity to blaze their own trails. As Oregon's first woman governor, I developed my first leadership skills while I was a Girl Scout.

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council
Field of Fun

Students look forward to field day at the end of the year; most do, except those with disabilities. I realized a local school excluded students from these fun-filled activities, and I sought to correct this by designing entertaining, all-inclusive activities for students with disabilities. I earned my Girl Scout Gold Award by raising awareness about disability programs and fighting for students' rights.

Fearless Defender of Families and Children

I've dealt with children's justice issues throughout my legal career. Girl Scouts helps girls discover their confidence and develop into young women capable of making their own decisions. As the first African American woman to serve as a justice on the Supreme Court of Ohio, I use the advice I received as a Girl Scout to help others make the right decisions for themselves.
