Famous Former Girl Scouts

Happy National Girl Scout Day!

Girl Scouting in the United States began on this day, March 12, 1912, when Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop meeting.  At this first troop meeting in Savannah, Georgia, there were 18 girls present.  For these girls, Juliette Gordon Low organized enrichment programs, service projects, and outdoor activities and adventures.  Since the time of the first meeting, Girl Scouts has grown to over 3.7 million members.

Sixty-four percent of women leaders in the U.S. are said to have once been a Girl Scout–are you one of them?  Click here for a great list of some “famous formers”.
