The Girl Scouts Women of Distinction are committed to increasing the impact of the Girl Scouts by volunteering and financial giving. Leaders are chosen by their dedication of service and leadership. This year’s Girl Scouts Women of Distinction is Faye Wilson Tate.
The Girl Scouts’ program has played a role in Tate’s community stewardship as she was a Girl Scout herself. The Girl Scouts also teach respect, teamwork, friendship and inclusion.
2012, is the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary. And as so Girl Scouts Colorado has named 100 Colorado Girl Scouts, Generation WOW! The Generation WOW honor is given to girls who have exhibited a high level of volunteer achievement and made significant contributions to their community; demonstrated strong leadership skills; participated in a service learning project; promoted healthy attitude, both in mind and body; demonstrated exceptional interpersonal skills in teamwork, conflict resolution and goal setting; and embody the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
The Girl Scouts’ impact on girls and youth is endlessly positive with several girls being able to articulately share their Girl Scout learning experiences. This is evident in Generation WOW girls―Kaycee Bischoff and Cristina Trimpe and all of Girl Scout troop 4145.
