Fall Recruitment Continues

First Lady Michelle Obama's recruitment campaign video is now available with Spanish-language subtitles. It can be found here.


President Barack Obama's sister, Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng, has recorded two videos to support the "I can't wait to..." recruitment efforts! In response to First Lady Michelle Obama's video, Dr. Soetoro-Ng and her daughter Suhaila talk about what they can't wait to do this Girl Scout year! The videos can be found here and here. Kudos to Girl Scouts of Hawai`i for making this a reality!


If anyone is looking for some historical context-setting in regards to the Honorary National President position, the Girl Scout Blog has a post titled, "What is the Position of the Honorary National President?" Check it out!
