GFWC Georgia’s State President, Tina Daniel has chosen Girl Scouts as her signature project.  Girl Scouts offers the best leadership development experience for girls in the world.  Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow.  We believe that Girls Scouts are our future members and leaders of this organization and country.  https://www.girlscouts.org/
