Each year, Girl Scouts of Greater New York recognizes one Ambassador
Girl Scout who embodies courage, confidence, and character, as the
Future Woman of Distinction. Through her commitment to community
service, high academic achievement, and demonstrated leadership
skills, she has distinguished herself as an exceptional role model for
her sister Girl Scouts. We are proud to announce the 2021 Future Woman
of Distinction: Madison Garrett.
Madison has been dedicated to Girl Scouting since she first recited
"On my Honor" over ten years ago. From mentoring younger
girls in her troop in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, to earning her Girl Scout
Gold Award by raising awareness of the rising suicide rate of African
American adolescents, Madison has emerged as a leader in her community
and a true agent of change.
Learn more about Madison Garrett in this interview conducted by New
York Times Assistant Editor and author of Troop 6000: The Girl
Scout Troop That Began in a Shelter and Inspired the
World, Nikita Stewart.
The proceeds from the Future Woman of Distinction celebration
will fund the growing demand for our programming, so thousands of Girl
Scouts in NYC can follow in Madison’s footsteps.
Thank you to our supporters!
