SOUTHPORT, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 27: Stacy Lew...

LPGA invites Girl Scouts to meet and greet some of the country's best women's golfers. Girls will participate in a putting clinic and spend time with the lady golfers, learning about the sport of golf and fulfilling dreams. The LPGA is providing pizza (yum!) and a special guest speaker, Stacy Lewis.
 
If you don't know who Stacy Lewis is, you'll want to get to know her.
 
Not just because Stacy has been the best amateur player in the country over the past 2 years, or because she was the 2007 NCAA champion, or even because she has won 12 tournaments at the collegiate level while putting the University of Arkansas' women's golf program on the map.
 
It isn't because in her last event as an amateur, at the prestigious Curtis Cup held at the Old Course at St. Andrews, Stacy became the first person in the 76 year history of the Curtis Cup to post a 5 - 0 record while leading her US team to an historic victory. And it isn't because in her first tournament as a professional at the US Open 2008, the most prestigious of majors, she lead the star-studded field after the 3rd round and played in the final group with Paula Creamer, where she managed to finish third.
        
You'll want to meet Stacy Lewis because she is the best story in women's golf due to the things she's overcome in order to just play golf again.   7.5 years in a back brace and back surgery, after which she wasn't sure she would even be able to walk, let alone swing a golf club again.
 
You won't be able to help but like Stacy because she's earned everything she's ever won, and then some. She embodies those values that we most cherish: fiercely competitive yet considerate, tremendously talented yet seeks betterment through hard work, intelligent without being condescending, confident without being self absorbed and incredibly irrepressible no matter what obstacles are before her. In many respects, Stacy Lewis is who we would like to be as Girl Scouts.

And, if you aren't convinced yet, you can always come for the pizza... (PS - we're just kidding about that!)

We are still in need of troops to Adopt a Distinguished Young Woman (formerly known as AJM) June 12-25. This is a special program just for Girl Scouts. We would love to have 50 troops participate in the program this year.  As soon as your troop is assigned a state, your girls can start corresponding with your state contestant. When the Distinguished Young Women arrive, your girls will already have a relationship with your DYW and will be anxiously awaiting her arrival.  
 
The tentative schedule for Girl Scouts and Distinguished Young Women:
·Arrival ceremony at Airport Sunday, June 12
·Special Girl Scout and Distinguished Young Women party (nominal fee to cover the meal), date TBA
·Girls can visit their young women at the "Meet and Greet" at Bel Air Mall, date TBA
·Community Night Show Wednesday, June 22
 
The Distinguished Young Women look forward to spending time with their Girl Scouts, therefore it is important that your troop be able to have some representation at all of the listed events in order to adopt.  Please consider the commitment before registering your troop.
 
The registration deadline has been extended to  to April 15. To register, fill out an Event Registration Form <http://www.girlscoutssa.org/forms/Program/Event_Registration.pdf> , write the girls' top three state choices and send to Mary Anne Brutkiewicz <mailto:mbrutkiewicz@girlscoutssa.org> .
 
We will again have the Be Your Best Self Patch program in connection with Distinguished Young Women.  This is a program to develop an understanding of the Distinguished Young Women program while gaining a desire for excellence. It builds self esteem to help one prepare to successfully deal with daily challenges in a way that exemplifies courage, confidence, and character. Please note on your Event Registration Form if your troop will be participating in the program.  We will need to get an accurate count to order patches by May 1.
