Letter From Alum Molly Jolly

Dear Alum,

Like you, I am a proud Girl Scout Alum whose spirit and character were profoundly shaped by my experiences as a Girl Scout. I learned about leadership, teamwork and decision making and developed a greater respect for myself and others, my community and my country.

I loved earning badges and took pride in the visible reminder of my accomplishments. Although my initial goal was to have a fully decorated sash, I know that I developed important life skills like goal setting as I earned badges.

Because of Girl Scouts, I learned I could do anything and be anything - but I had to be willing to do the work and to take risks. Although I might have been scared to speak in front of a group or climb that mountain, my troop and my leaders gave me the support I needed to try. I am forever indebted to my troop leaders, Mrs. Nevers and my mother, who kept me engaged and inspired through Girl Scouts.

Today, I am the Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration for Angels Baseball. I was able to combine my education in accounting and business with my passion for sports to achieve my dream job. The path to my current career path was not in a straight line – but Girl Scouts showed me that I could achieve any goal I set for myself. I am grateful to Girl Scouts for giving me leadership, planning and business skills and the courage to chart my career path.

If Girl Scouts made a difference in your life, like it did mine, please consider making a donation today. Your support means the world to a girl who needs the courage, confidence and character that Girl Scouts provides.

Yours in Scouting,
