The Girl Scouts One Smart Cookie Celebration honored women from the greater Memphis area who are making a difference as One Smart Cookie! Girl Scouts Heart of the South provides a safe space for girls to develop strong voices and leadership that will help move our state and nation forward.

In 1912, in the midst of the Progressive Era—and at a time when women in the United States couldn’t yet vote—Juliette Gordon Low envisioned an organization that would prepare girls to meet their world with courage, confidence, and character. Over 100 years later, Girl Scouts continues to inspire girls to embrace, together, their individuality, strength, and intellect.
Racism goes against the values of Girl Scouts, and although we have acted to counter racism throughout our history, we know we have enormous work ahead of us to build a truly anti-racist organization. We are prioritizing these efforts, both on an individual level and within every aspect of Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts Heart of the South will engage in challenging discussions, center voices we haven’t listened to in the past, act with integrity, and learn from any missteps. We pledge to never stop working to create the just and equitable world that every girl, and all of us, deserve.

Girl Scouts Heart of the South stands prepared and ready with new and innovative ways to continue to deliver on our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The world needs more people of courage, confidence, and character, to step up, pitch in, and be the leaders we all need in times like these. By making the difference in the life of a girl, Girl Scouts makes a difference in the world.
