Colorado Girl Scouts travel to Houston for Girl Scout National Convention
Girl Scouts of the USA recently held their National Convention in Houston, Tex from Nov. 8-13, and Amy Montgomery from Lamar (4th from right, second row from back) was part of the Colorado Girl Scout delegation that was selected to attend to represent and bring a Colorado voice to the proceedings. This year’s National Convention held special significance for Girl Scouts as the organization officially kicked off their 100th anniversary celebrations for 2012.
Keynote addresses at this year’s National Convention came from national celebrities, who also happen to be Lifetime Girl Scouts, such as Katie Couric and Robin Roberts. Popular singer Sara Barielles also entertained convention goers during the official 100th anniversary kickoff event on Saturday evening, Nov. 12th.
