Mary Caldwell Lemar, Lifetime Member

The Tampa Tribune has a story full of fantastic quotes from Mary Lemar, recipient of the Girl Scouts' Lifetime Membership Pin, Thanks Badge and the elusive Thanks Badge Two. Of the Scouts, Mary says:

"...we're very inclusive of everybody - races, sexual preferences and religions... We reinvent ourselves constantly, but with the same mission to empower girls to become a capable and strong part of their community. It's really up to the girls to decide what to do - not the adults - they set goals and learn leadership."
