As reported last year, both candidates in Oklahoma’s recent race for governor were Girl Scouts. Both candidates stated that the leadership skills they learned to get them to such an important moment in the state’s history could be traced directly to the experiences they had as Girl Scouts.
This week, The Kingsfisher Times and Free Press, OK, reports that members of Kingfisher Girl Scout Troop 500 traveled to the state capitol on Monday to see the inauguration of Oklahoma’s first female governor, Mary Fallin. The day started with an unofficial tour of the capitol and a visit with State Representative Mike Sanders. Troop members then made their way outside the capitol where they were asked to help distribute inauguration programs as visitors arrived for the event.
