Girl Scouts from across Indiana convened at Indiana’s capitol on February 26 for Girl Scout Day at the Statehouse. More than 100 Girl Scouts from Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana, and Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana spent the day meeting with elected women leaders and participated in a joint resolution ceremony in the House and Senate chambers honoring Girl Scouts in Indiana.
Highlights of the day included remarks from Girl Scout Day sponsor State Representative (District 92) Karlee Macer, Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush, State Representative (District 26) Sally Siegrist, Indiana’s Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, Executive Director of Youth & Service Leadership Christina Hale, and Girl Scouts of Central Indiana’s Chief Executive Officer Danielle Shockey.
Girl Scouts also met with interns and legislative assistants working at Indiana’s Statehouse, went on a scavenger hunt throughout the building, and participated in a get to know your government activity.
Ninety percent of Americans believe out-of-school programs like Girl Scouts play an important role in helping girls succeed. Girl Scouts from across the state are reinforcing this belief by encouraging our state leaders to interact with the next generation of leaders at Girl Scout Day at the Statehouse.
