Dreaming big is what Girl Scouts does best! Girl Scouts is ushering in tomorrow's generation of women leaders while honoring those who have exemplified its mission and values today.

In 2014 we are proud to recognize the leadership and dedication of Steve and Joan Gilliland for their longstanding volunteerism with Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council. Steve previously served on Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council’s Board of Directors and as the chair of both the Properties and Finance Committees. He currently serves at a national level as a board member of Girl Scouts of the USA. Joan has made a notable impact through her leadership and involvement with GSSJC’s community outreach program at the Center for Success and Independence in addition to her role as a troop leader, service unit administrator and volunteer.

In addition we will be recognizing the achievements of Sherry Williams, former Senior VP & Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Halliburton. As one of 10 children, Sherry came from very meager beginnings. As a young woman she was encouraged to become a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader; however she was determined to use her brains and not beauty. As a proud supporter of the Girl Scout mission, she has served as a speaker for the Girl Scout Leadership Institute and was spotlighted at the GSUSA pre-convention party in 2011 as an example of what a girl can do!
