The new Girl Scout membership year is officially in full swing! There have been kick-off events around the state, leaders and girls are making plans and girls are having fun, new experiences with their friends. We even got mad props from our Honorary President, First Lady Michelle Obama! Check it out!
Something you may not be aware of: every first lady since 1917, starting with Edith B. Wilson, has been Girl Scouts of the USA’s Honorary President! Every single one of them! (Note: We better start thinking about who will fill that role when the President IS A WOMAN and the First Lady is the “First Mister,” right?!)
Anyway, FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States) Michelle Obama and I go way back. She was here for an annual Girls Inc. event about a year or so ago, and I had the opportunity to meet her and share with her that I worked for Girl Scouts. She told me we were awesome – and doing great work!! I told her the same.
And here she is… making it clear to the world the brilliance of Girl Scoutsand why we are important to girls everywhere!
I can’t wait for you all to see her video and hear what she has to say. Please share with everyone you know.
