Happy 98th Anniversary Girl Scouts!

Today, Join with me in celebrating the 98th anniversary of Girl Scouts! More than 3 million girls in the United States and more than are discovering their path to leadership through Girl Scouts.

Self-discovery and community service were core values that Girls Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low sought to instill in girls from the earliest days. When the organization was founded in 1912, many girls’ paths in life were limited and Low’s vision was to establish an organization where any American girl could expand her personal horizon by having fun while exploring new interests and contributing to society. Low was determined to help expand opportunities and learning for the average American girl, and founded Girl Scouts on March 12, 1912.
