A Letter from the Board Chair

This year, twenty women were sworn in as United States Senators, the most ever in our history. Fourteen of those women are Girl Scouts. That is girl power in action. With more than 50 million alumnae, the impact and role of Girl Scouts in this country and Texas is undeniable and far reaching. As we reflect on our many accomplishments of 2012, we embrace the future with enthusiasm and confidence. Girl Scouts is the premier leadership organization for girls. It is our vision and intention to achieved balanced leadership in one generation. A tall order but we know that with the support we receive from the community and with the excellent programs that we are able to offer, this vision will become a reality.

Girl Scouts of Central Texas strives to create an environment where girls can discover themselves and their values; a place where they can connect with others, push boundaries and test limits; a place where they can develop their leadership potential and take action; a place that will serve as the launch pad for a successful life. Girl Scouts offers programming for every girl, no matter their background or ability to pay. From a kindergartener who wants to be president, to an eighth grader who strives to be a scientist and find a cure for cancer, to a Senior Gold Award recipient who helps to build a hospital helicopter pad for her community. Our girls can do anything.

It is the difference Girl Scouts are making today that will lead to a better tomorrow. Imagine a new generation of leaders who lead in an innovative way, stepping across barriers of class and ethnicity, guiding out of principle rather than pride, actively seeking out the work that needs to be done in the world and bringing boundless energy and enthusiasm to each challenge. We imagine this every day and it guides our actions.

We know that you believe in the Girl Scout mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. We know that you see the vision that we hold for all girls for a bright and limitless future. And we know that together we can make all our girls dreams a reality.

Yours in Girl Scouting,

Kirsten Billhardt
