First Lady Michelle Obama has formally accepted the role of Honorary National President of Girl Scouts of the USA. Kathy Cloninger and Connie L. Lindsey briefly met with the First Lady-and also President Obama-in an effort to pave the way for future discussions and collaborations around our shared agenda on girls' and women's issues. Girls from Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital were also present. We hope this is the first of many meetings between Girl Scouts and the First Family. Attached are two photos from the event-along with the national press release which was sent to you yesterday. Feel free to post the photos and the release on your council's Web site and distribute to your contacts. We have sent the release to national media, and the information is posted here: PR Newswire.
