Media Wrap-up: April 27 - May 10

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 few weeks below!

The Friendwood Journal shared Girl Scouts in the Friendswood Service Unit recently held a Father/Daughter dance called the "Belles and Beaus Ball".

The Memorial Examiner, Bellaire Examiner and YourFortBendNews.com all reported 25 Gold Award recipients recently received more than $30,000 in collage scholarships from The Emerald Circle.

The Examiner reported Girl Scouts in Beaumont recently honored leaders and volunteers with awards and announced Troop #4298 launched a cycling club.

This morning GSUSA CEO Anna Maria Chavez was a guest on CNBC's show Squawk Box and talked a little bit about what girls learned from the Cookie Program this year. It was on bright and early, so if you missed it, check it out below:


Nightly Business Report also ran a feature on the national Cookie Program, which you can watch here.

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