It may have been a celebration of Girl Scouts on Capitol Hill last Thursday, but it was a man that stole the show.
Rep. Jack Kingston charmed the audience at an event on Capitol Hill that welcomed the new female members of Congress. The Georgia Republican said he was often forced to go with his sisters to Girl Scouts meetings as a kid, and begrudgingly learned talents like “how to cook a pancake on a potato pan.”
Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez echoed Kingston’s thoughts that Girl Scouts have a significant effect on men, from those with “mothers who were Girl Scouts and troop leaders to their wives, sisters, daughters.”
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) spoke after Kingston about her experience as a troop mom, and she helped to announce the newly issued Girl Scout Centennial Silver Dollar.
