Today was Girl Scout Cookie Day on the Hill. Senator Gene Davis introduced the Girl Scouts visiting the Senate Chamber. The group presented each senator with a box of Girl Scout Cookies. If senators had a cookie preference, the girls quickly accommodated their requests.
Senator Davis also announced that Senator Pat Jones will be honored by the Girl Scouts next month. In recognition of Senator Jones’ outstanding service and leadership, she will be honored with the 2010 Girl Scouts of Utah Distinguished Alumnae Award. The award will be presented to Senator Jones at the Girl Scouts’ International Women’s Day Celebration March 4, 2010, at the Jewish Community Center.
Senator Jones has made incredible contributions to her community through her professional and volunteer endeavors and exhibits the Girl Scout Promise and Law in her daily life. She is honest and fair, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and makes the world a better place.
Senator Karen Morgan and Senator Karen Mayne are former Girl Scouts, too. Senator Karen Morgan is a previous recipient of the Girl Scouts of Utah Distinguished Alumnae Award.
Several of our visiting Girl Scouts were from Cottonwood Heights (Senator Morgan’s senate district) and one was from Kearns (Senator Karen Mayne’s senate district).
Congratulations, Senator Jones.
