Amy Loudenbeck and other women members of the Wisconsin legislature and executive branch participate in an investiture ceremony for an honorary Girl Scout troop, recently, in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting in America.

MADISON — Representative Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton) participated in an investiture ceremony recently for a newly-created, honorary Girl Scout troop for women in the Legislature and the Executive Branch. The ceremony was held at the State Capitol as part of a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America.

“Girl Scouts provides the opportunity for girls to discover themselves and their values, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place while developing a solid foundation in leadership and citizenship. I am proud to support the Girl Scouts tradition and congratulate the organization for 100 years of being the voice of millions of girls across America,” Loudenbeck said.

In their centennial year, the Wisconsin Girl Scout councils are focusing on efforts to increase interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professions.

“I learned so many essential skills growing up in Girl Scouts. I am excited to see the organization’s commitment to relevant initiatives such as STEM to help young women and girls prepare for the careers of the future,” said Loudenbeck.
