Media Wrap-up: Jan. 5-11

Each week Girl Scouts all over our Council are recognized by local media for their service projects, awards or even just for doing a good deed. Check out our favorites from the past week below!

We know everyone's busy with the Cookie Sale, so we just have one quick news item to share with you today.

We're excited to share GSSJC Volunteer and Board Member Corrie Jenkins was recently named a Houston Texans Community Quarterback! The award recognizes individuals who volunteer with United Way Agencies in the greater Houston area who exemplify leadership, dedication and commitment to improving their communities. Corrie (pictured on the far left in red) was recognized on the field during the Texans home game on Dec. 23, and the Texans will donate $1,500 to Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council. Congrats Corrie!

Don't forget, you can always submit your own troop news for consideration on the blog by emailing us at communications@sjgs.org.
