Up next in our series spotlighting our Women of Distinction honorees is KAREN ROSS. Karen is President and CEO of Sharp Decisions, a technology consulting services firm that she founded in 1990 under the premise that “anything is possible with teamwork and integrity.” Karen is passionate about giving under-served individuals an opportunity to succeed, from Girl Scouts in urban areas to military veterans. In fact, she started a program that hires veterans full-time and trains them with in-demand IT skills. For more information: http://www.girlscoutsnyc.org/wod/2015-honorees#karen

This week, we’re excited to feature five fantastic women we’re honoring at our Women of Distinction Breakfast in October. Each of them inspire today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders. First up: VALERIE RAINFORD, a Managing Director and Banking Operations Executive at JPMorgan Chase. Valerie is the most senior African-American female in the whole organization! Growing up in the Bronx, Valerie was a Girl Scout in an after-school program. She remembers those afternoons fondly because, as she says, “there was nowhere else to go.” She can even still sing her Girl Scout troop song! Valerie passed her love of scouting on to her daughters, both of whom were in a troop in Rockland County. For more information: http://www.girlscoutsnyc.org/wod/2015-honorees#valerie

Today is National S’Mores Day! Did you know that the first-known recorded version of a “S’Mores” recipe can be found in an official Girl Scouts publication from 1927? S’Mores are a perfect campfire treat – and the perfect place to enjoy S’Mores is at our very own Camp Kaufmann. The Girl Scouts of Greater New York is the ONLY all-urban council in the United States, and for many of our girls, visiting Camp Kaufmann is their first time away from the city, and their first opportunity to explore nature. Every year, over 3,000 girls and adults come to our 425-acre wooded oasis in Dutchess County for our outdoor recreational and environmental leadership programs. As those who visited this past summer know, big things are happening at camp! By next summer, our brand-new swimming pool and aquatics center will be ready, and we’re also planning more updates to camp to ensure that thousands more girls over the next century can taste their first s’more at Camp Kaufmann!

The U.S. Treasury is redesigning the $10 bill, which will include a woman who is a "champion for our inclusive democracy." Might we suggest that it feature Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low? If you agree, please share this post! #TheNew10
