Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama would like to express its most sincere condolences to the family of Rep. Yvonne Kennedy. Since 1979, Dr. Kennedy served as the representative for the 97th District of Alabama in Mobile until her passing. She was committed to community service and was a dedicated supporter of education and youth in our community. She was a long-time supporter of Girl Scouts and was recently inducted into Troop 1912, an honorary troop composed of elected and government officials dedicated to addressing issues that impact girls. Her strong voice, intellect and compassion for those who have no voice and for issues that matter will be truly missed.
We salute Rep. Kennedy and send our sincerest condolences to her family and all who loved her.
