A PROCLAMATION GIRL SCOUTS DAY AT THE CAPITOL

WHEREAS :

100 years ago, juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She based the Girl Scouts on the belief that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Since its establishment, Georgia Girl Scouts have been engaged in leadership development and have served as a resource for the growth and development of girls in our state; and

WHEREAS:

Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls in grades K-12 discover themselves and their values, connect with other girls, and take action to make the world a better place; and

WHEREAS:

Through the dedication, time, and talent of volunteers of different backgrounds, abilities, and areas of expertise, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is brought to over 55,000 girls in grades K-l2 across the State of Georgia; and

WHEREAS:

The Gold Award requires girls in grades 9-1 2 to make a measurable and sustainable difference in their community through assessing a need, designing a solution, and, through completion of their project, inspiring others to sustain it. It is the highest Girl Scout award in honoring leadership; and

WHEREAS:

I applaud all of the recipients of the Gold Award, and wish them success as they continue to make meaningful and sustainable change in their communities and around the world; now

THEREFORE:

I, NATHAN DEAL, Governor of the State of Georgia, do hereby proclaim February 2, 2016, as GIRL SCOUTS DAY AT THE CAPITOL in Georgia.
