Inspiring the Girls of
Today and Tomorrow
These are real life examples of the Girl Scout mission hard at work. Leadership is not defined by age, but rather how much heart and soul a person dedicates to helping those in need. On October 16, 2016, seven Girl Scouts, spanning across multiple generations, were recognized for their work in making our world a better place. Taylor Grochowski, 13, from Wilkes-Barre; Lorelei Brewer-McIntyre, 11, from Duncannon; Gwendolyn Little, 18, from Mechanicsburg; Felicia Wranitz, 19, from Auburn; and Dr. Kimberly Bolig of Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania are undoubtedly inspiring in their own unique ways because they are using their passions, interests and talents to solve today’s problems.
Barbara Palmer, State College, and Betsy Keefer, York, spent the majority of their lives in Girl Scouting dedicated to make an impact on thousands of Girl Scouts’ lives. They will continue to inspire future generations of Girl Scouts through their personal legacies which includes an estate commitment to Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania.
