Public invited to meet Girl Scouts’ national CEO

Anna Maria Chávez, the new chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of the USA, will participate in two community events on Friday, June 15. Chávez is visiting San Diego to help celebrate Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary. She is the first Latina to lead the 3.2 million members of America’s premier leadership development organization for women.

Hispanic girl membership in Girl Scouts has increased 55 percent in the past decade. In partnership with MANA de San Diego, Chávez will speak at a Latino Community Breakfast hosted by SeaWorld. Chávez will describe Girl Scouts’ Hispanic Initiative, and explore how the Girl Scout Promise and Law reflect fundamentals that Latinos identify as important: family, education, self respect, culture and morals. The breakfast will be held from 8–9:30 a.m. in SeaWorld’s Nautilus Pavilion. Tickets may be purchased for $15 at www.sdgirlscouts.org. For details, contact Adina Veen at (619) 610-0789 or aveen@sdgirlscouts.org.
