Girl Scouts go to Raleigh for Legislative Day

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast CEO Tracy Keller and board chair Barbara Tierney, along with several Girl Scout members from Currituck, traveled to Raleigh to take part in the North Carolina Girl Scout Legislative Day in March.

They joined members from other North Carolina Girl Scout councils for the advocacy event. Girl Scout teens Hailey Richardson, Cheyenne Wikkerink, Bethany French, Kilani Conte and Maria Jackson added a tour of the Legislative Library to their day, offered by librarian and Girl Scout alum Kelsey Lewis.

The girls viewed and handled state legislative books from the early 1800s and read about current bills, including a bill asking for the loggerhead turtle to be named the state’s saltwater reptile. They also visited North Carolina legislators that included Senator Steinburg and Representative Hanig.

The day ended with Gold Award Girl Scout Chief Justice Cheri Beasley delivering Governor Cooper’s proclamation that honored the 107th anniversary of Girl Scouts, recognizing Girl Scouts as a premier leadership program for girls that helps them build courage, confidence and character.
