Stealing Our Hearts, One Cookie at a Time

 In Uncategorized

While Margee, our resident nap expert, is fully celebrating todays National Nap Day, we also want to highlight the young ladies of Girl Scouts USA on National Girl Scout Day.

Although we all recognize them as hard-hitting entrepreneurs during cookie season, Girl Scouts are passionate and determined to make a difference in the world. Ann had the chance to meet Trinity Murray, Girl Scout Gold Award winner, at the YWCA Women of Achievement event. Trinity peaked our curiosity and inspired us to learn more about our local girl scouts.

Commonly referred to as the Girl Scout equivalent of an “Eagle Scout,” Girl Scout USA claims the Gold Award is “the most prestigious award in the world for girls – and the most difficult to earn.” By some standards, this award is even harder to obtain than an Eagle scout ranking. We don’t want to discredit the valuable skills that come with camping, tying knot


s, and earning badges, however the winners of the Gold Award are researching, planning, and implementing change to correct real world problems locally, nationally, and globally.

This award is only available to high school girl scouts who have taken on the challenge of changing their corner of the world. Once awarded, girls receive scholarships for further education, higher rank within the military, and essential life skills such as time management and distinguished leadership ability. The seven steps of the project include c


hoosing a passionate issue in the community; investigating through articles, interviews, and other organizations; networking and recognizing talent in others to build a team; creating a sustainability plan including a budget projection; presenting the proposal to the local Girl Scout Council and adjusting to their feedback; setting a plan into action; and finally, educating and inspiring friends, family, and the global community. Projects vary by subjects that include agriculture, STEM, education, and medicine.

Our local council is the North Carolina Coastal Pines Council reaching 41 counties in Eastern and Central North Carolina, with their headqu


arters here in Wilmington. Of their 26,000 members, 60 girls were awarded Gold Awards in their 2016-2017 year. The Coastal Pines annual report recognized one project that converted a doctor’s office into a safe house for domestically abused women. Victoria then went on to educate women on how to recognize and defend themselves against domestic abuse.

We at Fluent PR are strong supporters of female entrepreneurs and could not be more proud of the amazing work by young ladies in our community. On National Girl Scout day, we recognize and salute the future leaders, entrepreneurs, and trailblazers growing, learning, and inspiring through Girl Scouts USA.
