On Halloween, a day that many associate with ghosts and spirits of the past, Girl Scouts the world over celebrate the life of their founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who was born October 31, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia. An innovator, Low's vision prepared girls for future roles as professional women-in the arts, sciences and business-and for active citizenship outside the home. Low's benevolence and boldness has enabled millions of girls worldwide to grow and blossom into productive and responsible women.
Today, take some time to celebrate our founder. Share Juliette Low's story with your Girl Scouts. Observe the day with some special act of service, program or ceremony. Pay tribute to our founder, a real life super hero, who overcame tremendous adversity and prevailed with grace. It is a testament to her will and great resolve that she did not let her deafness define her, rather she took it in stride as part of her life and went on to make history.
