At Girl Scouts, our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. That mission, along with the Girl Scout Promise and Law, align closely with the mission and values of Greenville University,” said Graham. “We are excited for this partnership and the opportunities that will be available to girls throughout Southern Illinois. Some may say, ‘The sky’s the limit!’ With this partnership, the sky is NOT the limit because there is so much more!”

According to Victoria Clark, “There are so many synergies between our organizations and what we value. We see so many ways to connect our students, our scholarship programming, and even provide opportunities for Girl Scouts to earn badges on our campus. It is a privilege to scholarship young women from such a respected organization. We look forward to a growing relationship with GSOFSI.”
