Girl Scout Program in Utah Is Still Growing

Girl Scout Program in Utah Is Still Growing
Salt Lake Tribune 18May99 C1
By Jon Ure: Salt Lake Tribune

Marsha Johnson Evans, retired rear admiral and now executive director for the Girl Scouts of America, visited Utah recently. She described the goals of the scouting program and recent studies that have cited the influence of girl scouts in the lives of successful women.

Today, scouting provides girls with opportunities from sports to service and even reaches out to untapped communities, such as immigrant girls who are supported through a partnership program along the Mexican border. Not very many (approximately 14,000) Utah girls belong to the Girl Scouts of America due to participation in the LDS advancement days program for 8 to 12 year old girls. This Primary program parallels girl scouting by providing weekly activities for girls. However, Ms.Evans is supportive of any girls programs that help in the healthy development of young women.
