Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years

Girl Scouts celebrate 100 yearsThe Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee is celebrating 100 years of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Pickett County Executive Johnie Neal signed a proclamation recognizing 100 years of Girl Scouts and proclaimed 2012 as “The Year of the Girl”.
Since 1912 this organization has helped girls realize their full potential by offering five different program areas of study. They are financial literacy, S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Healthy living, art and leadership.
The Girl Scouts of Pickett County would like to thank the community for the support given to them over the last year!
