Weekend Run-Down

Hello! This weekend brought in stories from Dolly Parton to a Washington Post piece on sixteen Gold Award winners and much more. Enjoy!

  • First, Dolly Parton and the Girl Scouts of Tanasi Council have joined together to create a brand new patch called the “Coat of Many Colors” patch program based on Parton’s best-selling autobiographical song about childhood poverty. Read about it in The Insider.

  • Next, head over to The Washington Post to read about sixteen girls who received the Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts.

  • In Bastrop, Louisiana, a Summer library program with The Girl Scouts of Louisiana is presenting Uniquely Me! workshops. Read about it in The Bastrop Enterprise.

  • Congrats to Girl Scout Yolanda Hinman in Wyoming, a 2009 graduate of Rawlins High School, who has received a scholarship from Meridian Trust for the coming academic year.

  • Lastly, check out an article in Forbes about Liz Ann Sonders, senior vice president and chief investment strategist for Charles Schwab, who was honored by the Girl Scouts of New York in 2008 as an "Exceptional Role Model for Young Women."

  • Have a great week!
