Each year, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast (GSCCC) honors Girl Scout alum, women in the community who were Girl Scouts as girls, and who have distinguished themselves as outstanding role models for girls and women through their professional and volunteer achievements. All honorees are women living in southeastern Virginia or northeastern North Carolina. In addition to Famous Former honorees, there is a category for a Future Famous Former as well.
Last year, GSCCC added a corporate award to the annual event that recognizes a corporation or entity that supports the Girl Scouts mission and has taken actions to improve the lives of girls and women in our communities.
