Girl Scouts Visit Radio Disney
Girl Scouts Ariel B. and Portia D. had a magically fun time at KMIC-AM 1590. The “Tiggerific” duo was interviewed on Radio Disney’s Breakfast Club show by Mickey Mouse’s right-hand man, Raymon Wright.
Both Ariel and Portia are members of Media Corps, which are girls who have an interest in representing the Council in the public through television, radio or printed publications. Girls can learn behind the scenes operations while brushing up on their public speaking skills.
“I have really enjoyed the opportunities I’ve had through the Girl Scouts,” said Portia. “Especially when I get to be on television or on the radio. I get more comfortable each time,” she said.
The Girl Scouts are celebrating their 95th year anniversary this year. Founder Juliette Gordon Low started the organization in 1912 and was known as an innovative and unique woman. She believed in the opportunity for her Girl Scouts to learn something new but also wanted them to have fun along the way!
Ariel also enjoyed her radio debut. “That was so much fun,” she said. “I wasn’t even nervous,” she continued.
Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's preeminent organization for girls, with a membership of more than 3.7 million girls and adults. Today, as when founded in 1912, GSUSA helps cultivate values, social conscience, and self-esteem in young girls, while also teaching them critical life skills that will enable them to succeed as adults. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country serving over 63,000 girl members and 18,000 adults in 25 southeast Texas counties. For more information call 1-800-392-4340 or visit www.gssjc.org.
