“Our mission at Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place,” said Loretta Graham, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois. “In order for us to be successful in this mission, we MUST listen to what girls want in a leadership experience. I couldn’t be happier to have such a great group of young ladies representing today’s Girl Scouts who are shaping the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for the younger girls in our council,” Graham added.
