Girl Scout Cookie Time With CEO Loretta Graham


Dear Girl Scout Volunteers & Families, 

Leadership is the new normal! You are developing the next generation of women leaders.

As you know, there is so much more to a Girl Scout Cookie than the tasty treat you find in the box. So what’s really in the box of Girl Scout Cookies? Leadership. When Girl Scouts sell cookies, they are building a lifetime of skills and confidence. There are no limits. Girls can be and do anything! As a Girl Scout caregiver, you will be encouraging, guiding, and mentoring girls to new experiences where they will unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader). Because of your dedication and support, girls in our council will have the courage and confidence to be future leaders in Southern Illinois, the United States and beyond. Thank you!

Our Girl Scout cookies are delicious. Still, beyond the sweetness, Girl Scout Cookies provide opportunities for girls to accomplish extraordinary acts. Modern leadership principles are cultivated through girls’ life experiences. Girls who aspire to be leaders in the fields of business, government, religion and academia are positively influenced by the experience and knowledge they gain through the Girl Scout Cookie Program which teaches girls to set goals, make sound decisions, manage money, develop good people skills and learn business ethics. Real examples of the impact of the program: girls planning field trips and service projects in their community; girls earning the opportunity to build a lifetime of memories at camp; girls planning adventures across the globe; and girls empowering each other to start small businesses impacting the marketplace. Girls can change the world and with your support their futures are bright! Girls Scout Cookies help make it all happen.

Thank you again for serving girls. Because of your donation of time and talent, and your support to this program we are helping the next generation of girl leaders taste the true flavor of success. You help these girls become our next generation of leaders.

On My Honor,
Loretta Graham | Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois CEO
