Girl Scouts celebrate its 100th birthday

Written by 

Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont will join other Girl Scouts across the nation this week to celebrate Girl Scout Week and the group's 100th Anniversary.

During the week, Girl Scouts of all ages celebrate by demonstrating leadership and commitment in ways that have a real impact on their communities.

"Girl Scout Week is an opportunity to celebrate the long and proud history of Girl Scouting and to engage our girls in making our communities and world a better place," said Marcia Cole, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont.

Founder Juliette Gordon Low established the organization in 1912. Her vision was to grow a girl-centered organization, where girls could experience the outdoors, expand their worlds through community service and learn the skills needed to be successful women in the society they lived in.
