We do have a lot of “famous formers” Girl Scout alumnae like Dakota Fanning, Chelsea Clinton, Laura Bush, Katie Couric, Mariah Carey and Sheryl Crow. Yet Girl Scout Greats come from all walks of life: inspirational volunteers, business and political rainmakers, scientists and inventors, devoted parents, and celebrities pursuing their dreams. They all have this in common: they’re Girl Scouts, just like you.
