Famous Girl Scout Alumnae
You’re in good company!
 
 
Girl Scouting teaches empowerment and encourages young women to be all that they can be. The fact that some of our nation’s brightest stars are former Girl Scouts is no coincidence!
 
Did you know? An amazing 64 percent of today’s female leaders listed in Who's Who of American Women in the United States were once Girl Scouts.
