Arizona Girl Scouts Stick Together!

In Arizona, The Ahwatukee News has a fantastic story about a group of Girl Scouts who have been together since the second grade, and are now away at college and reflecting on their time together. They each give credit to their leaders for their success both in Girl Scouts and in life. The article relates that It seems simple for a group to get together, but staying together is what's rare. Many troops disband when a leader gets too busy or their daughter decides to quit. In Troop 592, one leader decided to stay with the group even after her daughter left.

The girls say they learned a lot from being a part of Girl Scouts for so long, like responsibility, people skills, outdoor skills and they found something they all had in common - a love for volunteering. Definitely read the entire article here!
