Girl Scouts: Famous Formers

Saturday, March 12th is National Girl Scout Day and to celebrate, we want to take a look at some of today’s fearless female leaders that started out as Girl Scouts–including two of our own Generation W speakers Rear Admiral Mary M. Jackson and Admiral (Ret) Marty Evans, who also served as the executive director of Girl Scouts USA from 1998-2002.  An estimated 64% of today’s women leaders in the United States were once Girl Scouts–were you?  If so, you join a long list of fantastic women including:
