BRIDGING INTO THE
NEXT CENTURY
On October 31, we honored a
Girl Scout tradition, and Shirley
and Richard Mosher. The
couple graciously donated
a new ceremonial bridge to
the Girl Scouts of Kansas
Heartland. This very special
bridge will lead girls into the
next one hundred years of
courage, confidence and
character. Richard and Shirley
are long time volunteers and
donors to Girl Scouting and we
are forever grateful for what
they do for the girls.

Definition:
The word is derived from the
Greek language, meaning “love
for mankind”. Modern definitions
include the concept of voluntary
giving by an individual or group
to promote the common good
and improve quality of life.
Although our centennial year
celebrations have concluded,
Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland
continues to raise awareness of
the importance of investing in
the next generation of girls. Our
national campaign, To Get Her There,
challenges all of us to narrow the
leadership gap betweenmen and
women in a single generation.
Today’s girl is backing down, opting
out, and playing small. She lacks role
models andmentors, especially in
the high-paying science, technology,
engineering, andmath (STEM)
fields. Studies reveal that girls
idealize leadership qualities and
skills, like being talented, caring,
honest, hard-working, confident,
good listeners, and teamplayers.
But only 21% of girls believe they
have the qualities required to be
a good leader. In other words, she
knows what it takes to lead, but she
lacks the confidence to do so.
As we begin our 101st year, please
consider a gift to Girl Scouts of
Kansas Heartland. A gift of any
amount helps us provide girls, who
otherwise would not be able to
afford it, with a year’s worth of Girl
Scout Leadership Experiences. With
your help, GSKH can continue to
provide every girl with the skills and
confidence necessary to become
whatever kind of successful leader
she wants to be, and that we need
her to be.
Envelopes
are now included
in each
Shout Out
to
make it easy to support
your council. Please consider a
gift today by returning the small
envelope that canmake a big
difference in leadership growth
for the next generation of girls.
