Girl Scouts in the News April 10 & 13


On Monday, April 13th, the Girl Scouts will join the ranks of Warren Buffett, Condoleezza Rice, Michael Bloomberg, and other esteemed American leaders by ringing The Opening BellSM at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).


At 9:30 a.m., sixteen Girl Scouts ranging from Daisy-level (grades K-1) to Ambassadors (grades 11-12) will participate in The Opening Bell ceremony, joined by Girl Scouts of the USA's CEO Kathy Cloninger, Chief Marketing Officer Laurel Richie, and Chief Financial Officer Florence Corsello. 


"In these uncertain times, girl leadership and the Girl Scouts make a surefire investment," said Kathy Cloninger, GSUSA CEO. "Families need a safe and affordable place for their daughters to learn, grow, and have fun in the midst of a chaotic world. And the world desperately needs more girls and women in power solving the complex problems we face."


On the day of the event, a photo of the bell ringing will be on the homepage as well as access to live and archived webcasts.

When no one stepped in to take over Troop 1444, Fayette NC, after their leader was deployed to Baghdad, one dad volunteered to accept the challenge!  Keith Reagan has been leading Girl Scout troop 1444 for the last several months and so far the girls and parents have embraced him with open arms.


Tonight (April 10) Fox News channel takes a look at this unique Girl Scout troop. The story is slated to run on The Fox Report with Shepherd Smith, which airs at 7 p.m. EST. Regan hopes to inspire other dads to get involved.
