|GSNETX Alumnae Association|
The Girl Scout Research Institute released the Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study in 2012. This is the most comprehensive study ever conducted about Girl Scout Alumnae. This survey found that there are an estimated 59 million American women who are former Girl Scouts - this is nearly 1 in every 2 adult women. In general, compared with non-alumnae, Girl Scout alumnae feel better about themselves, are more active in their community, are better educated, and enjoy higher household incone.
In Texas we have an estimated 1 million alumnae. Join the Girl Scouts Northeast Texas Alumnae Association today by visiting www.gsnetx.org/alumnae. It's free to join and a wonderful way to reconnect with women who are connected to the Girl Scout mission.

Grab Your Boots & Meet Us at the 2012 State Fair of Texas!
September 28 - October 21
The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas is celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting with "The Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Experience" at the 2012 State Fair of Texas.
The Centennial Exhibition will be located in the historic Hall of State and is open to all Girl Scouts, volunteers, alumnae and State Fair of Texas visitors. The exhibition is presented by AT&T with creative design and production by Corporate Magic. AT&T's Global Marketing Officer and Girl Scouts of the USA board member, Cathy Coughlin, is the Honorary Chair for GSNETX's 100th Anniversary.
The exhibition will showcase 100 years of history and the vision for the second century of Girl Scouting. The interactive experience will allow visitors to walk through a life-sized cookie box, be part of a virtual troop and campfire and download the Girl Scout mobile app. While you are at the 2012 State Fair of Texas, don't forget to try the Fried Samoas!
Share your experience with us via social media by using the hastags #TexasStateFair, #LoneStarSamoas and #GirlScouts100. (Hashtags are to social media what a subject line is to email, telling people what a tweet or photo is about.)

What if we could breakdown all barriers that are keeping girls from reaching their full potential as leaders? Would you help?
Girl Scouts of the USA has launched the ToGetHerThere campaign, the largest advocacy and fundraising campaign dedicated to girls' leadership in our nation's history. The long-term benefit of this project is to help girls seek and reach their leadership potential and help break down societal barriers that hinder girls from achieving success.
Girls were born to lead, but something happens. Negative influences, unhealthy images in the media about beauty, a lack of mentors, little support for girls with an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and bullying contribute to the discouragements that keep girls from moving forward.
Research shows that 61% of girls are either deeply ambivalent about leadership or say it's not important to them at all. Even though girls idealize leadership qualities and skills, like being talented, caring and hard-working, only one in five girls believe they have what it takes to lead.
To Find out how you can help and take the ToGetHerThere pledge, visit ToGetHerThere.org. When girls succeed, so does society. Together, we can get her there.
A Video for Delila
Once Meagan Massey set her mind to earning her Gold Award, no matter what was occurring in her life, she would get it done.
Her Girl Scout troop leader of three years, Delila Dennison, gave Massey the idea to create a video discussing the importance of having hope and confidence while living with cancer for her Gold Award project.
