Low brought 18 girls together with the belief that every girl should be given the skills to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road continues to instill these skills in girls 100 years later and works with more than 17,000 Girl Scouts each year.

Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA explains, “Our 100th anniversary is our moment in time to bring the nation together to make a difference in the lives of girls. Girls represent an incredible resource for our country and Girl Scouts has always provided them a platform for success, and during our centennial we want everyone—men and women alike—to join us in making sure that every girl achieves her full leadership potential.”
