Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) introduced a resolution today in recognition of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America's 106th birthday. The resolution celebrates the opportunities the program provides for girls and women across the nation. 

"Since the founding of the Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, the program has built courage, confidence, and character in girls and women across the nation," said Carter. "Alumnae of the program have blazed trails for women and have created a better world for all of us. It is an honor to represent the birthplace of the Girl Scouts and I am proud to introduce this resolution during the program's birthday celebration and Women's History Month."

"Girl Scout Week is a time to reflect on the courage, confidence, and character that our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, instilled in the girl-led Movement she created," said Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. "Those values have permeated the Girl Scout experience ever since. For 106 years, Girl Scouts has been the world’s best girl leadership development program, helping girls unlock their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) to make the world a better place now and in the future. I want to thank Congressman Carter for his leadership and for joining in this moment of celebration. We are grateful to have him as a champion as we work to educate, inspire, and empower girls in Georgia and around the country.”
