Girls and boys get a head-start on working in the community

"As a mother of five, I've found time to balance the needs of my family with my Girl Scout duties without too much difficulty," Warren said. "And being a leader is a great opportunity to meet other parents in the community."

 As a military spouse, Warren has seen the Girl Scouts at work throughout the country with her other daughters, and says no matter what, the core standards still apply.

"Regardless of the location of the troop, all Girl Scouts learn the same lessons," she said. "I've seen the Girl Scout program thrive in many different communities, including overseas."

Making sure that the Girl Scouts has a presence in Walton County is important to Warren.

"I know that Girl Scouts is perfect for a small, close-knit community like ours," she said. "Having troops in the area provides a positive after-school activity for our children and the more troops we have, the more opportunities we have to learn and grow with each other."
