Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins met virtually with members of Girl Scout Troop 11 from Cumberland.
“I met with an impressive group of Girl Scouts from Troop 11 in Cumberland. As a former Girl Scout in my hometown of Caribou, I have such fond memories of earning badges, and I remember how wonderful it was to learn new skills,” said Senator Collins. “The character, volunteerism, and leadership skills that the Girl Scouts instill contribute greatly to our society. Girl Scouts taught me that determination, principles, and respect for others can take you everywhere you want to go—including to the halls of the United States Capitol.”
As a co-chair of the Girl Scouts’ Honorary Troop Capitol Hill, Senator Collins led a bipartisan resolution recognizing the 109th birthday of the Girl Scouts of America and celebrating its legacy of empowering the next generation of female leaders. The Senate passed the resolution unanimously.
