What do Hilary Clinton, Katie Couric, Vanessa Williams and Susan Lucci have in common? They were all Girl Scouts!
In celebration of the Girl Scouts of USA’s 100th anniversary (which was officially March 12th), the organization has partnered with King Features Syndicate to nationally distribute a print and online feature called “Girl Scout Greats.” Girl Scouts of the USA has a spectacular record at producing accomplished leaders. Some interesting stats include:
· 69% of female U.S. Senators were Girl Scouts
· 67% of female members of the House of Representatives were Girl Scouts
· 80% of female business owners were all once Girl Scouts.
Each day for the next year, newspapers and websites will be running a special profile that spotlights past Girl Scouts that have become accomplished women including the women mentioned above. Each profile includes a photo and brief statement explaining the impact that the Girl Scouts experience had on her personal and professional development.
Here are a few examples of the spotlights.
