Girl Scouts enjoy Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame exhibit

On Saturday, August 26, 2017, Girl Scouts were treated to a presentation by Woman of Distinction and Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame founder M.L. Hanson as she introduced the inspiring stories of some of the extraordinary women who have been inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. Their groundbreaking accomplishments, many times overcoming difficult challenges, have been amazing and contributed to enhancing diverse fields of endeavor from the arts and culture to science and technology. Following this was a private self-guided tour and reception. The traveling exhibit is currently housed by the Museum of the West in Grand Junction. Sponsors of this event invited Girl Scouts to learn about some of Colorado’s most influential women throughout history. Girls were able to pose for pictures with M.L. and ask about her personal journey as well as those on display. This is one of those rare opportunities that present themselves to Girl Scouts and makes being a part of our organization impactful on the lives of these girls.
