GSUSA CEO visits GSOFCT’s Historical Museum
November 16, 2012
Chávez, visiting from New York City, had the opportunity to meet with girls, volunteers, and key supporters during her afternoon visit. She also took the time to preview Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Historical Museum, looking over artifacts and documents from the past 100 years of Girl Scouting. The official opening of the museum to the public and the press will be hosted in January 2013.
“There is the need to preserve our history,” Chávez said, congratulating those in attendance on putting the museum together. “We are not just part of the history, we are the history.”
Chávez also met members of the Board of Directors and hosted a lunch with staff and members of the Board of Directors to learn more about the sixth largest Girl Scout Council in the country.
“We were honored to host Ms. Chávez at our North Haven offices,” said Mary Barneby, Girl Scouts of Connecticut CEO. “She is an inspiration to all of us with her hard work and dedication to the Girl Scout Mission. She has been a national force in informing the public and top decision-makers about the importance of our programming for girls. We were all excited and pleased to get to spend time with her today.”
Before her role as CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, Chávez served as Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas. Prior to these roles, she served as Deputy Chief of Staff for Urban Relations and Community Development for the former Governor of Arizona and current U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.
