““The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.””


Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low 1860-1927
When Daisy made the phone call to her cousin saying, "I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!" she probably had no idea she would be influencing the lives of more than 50 million people as the founder of the Girl Scouts. Daisy’s life was challenging, she was deaf in one ear from a grain of rice thrown at her wedding and her marriage was childless. When her husband died she discovered he had left their money to his mistress. Undaunted, she sued for her share of the estate and then devoted the remainder of her life to the Girl Scouts. She has been featured on a US stamp, had a WWII Liberty Ship named in her honor, and she has been inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
