With the 2014 Girl Scout Convention right around the corner and the anticipation building every day, we’re excited to announce that Robin McGraw has been named national celebrity spokesperson for Girl Scouts of the USA! Besides being a television personality, entrepreneur, lifelong philanthropist, and two-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, Robin is a Girl Scout alumna, a former Girl Scout troop leader, and a longtime supporter of programs that benefit women and children.
"I cannot tell you how much this means to me," says McGraw. “I was a Girl Scout growing up my entire life, and was a Brownie troop leader before I even had children. We all must be diligent and passionate in our support for girls and it begins today.”
In her first official act as spokesperson for Girl Scouts, Robin produced a public service announcement (PSA) alongside our very own Anna Maria Chávez. Robin urged people to volunteer by visiting girlscouts.org, bringing attention to the 30,000 girls still waiting to be Girl Scouts.
“Girl Scouts is lucky to have such a passionate and notable alumna and former troop leader come back to us in this new capacity,” says Chávez. “Robin is an example of what we need from more adults – a commitment to our nation’s girls. As a volunteer, she had the unique opportunity to positively impact young girls’ lives, and as we work together to increase the number of volunteers so more girls can become Girl Scouts, she again will have a direct impact on building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”
If you’re anxious to see more from Robin, tune in to a special episode of the Dr. Phil show airing Friday, September 19, featuring Anna and twenty girls from Girl Scouts of Greater LA. And last but certainly not least, Robin is slated to be a featured speaker at the 2014 Girl Scout Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah!
Let’s all get ready for Robin!
