At its Annual Meeting, Girl Scouts of Connecticut awarded Nina Ruckes with Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Sprit of the Dragonfly Pin for showing an amazing dedication to providing older girl members with opportunities to develop as individuals through guidance, mentoring, and coaching in support of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
We are Girl Scouts of Connecticut. We’re more than 41,000 members strong – over 27,500 girls and nearly 14,000 adults – who believe that every girl can change the world. We’re part of a sisterhood of 2.6 million strong around the globe—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
