Girl Scouts of Central Texas Attend National Convention

Etta with Katie Couric
Nearly 50 Central Texas Girl Scout staff, delegates and supporters attended the Girl Scouts National Council Session 52nd Convention in Houston, TX from Nov. 10-13. The three-day convention offered several activities including the organization’s centennial celebration on Saturday, hundreds of seminars and the organization’s business meeting where GSUSA welcomed its new Chief Executive Officer, Anna Maria Chavez.

The event also featured appearances by such role models as award-winning journalist Katie Couric, newscaster Robin Roberts of Good Morning America, gospel singer Yolanda Adams and first African-American female combat pilot Vernice Armour.

“Our council was inspired by all the amazing women, girls and speakers that attended the National Convention,” says Etta Moore, Girl Scouts of Central Texas Chief Executive Officer. “As we prepare to celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2012, Girl Scouts of Central Texas will continue develop girl leaders for this country and for this world.”

For the past century, Girl Scouts have been an iconic American organization, committed to service and leadership.
