Assemblyman Mike Morrell honors Girls Scouts of San Gorgonio with an award for Girl Scout's Centennial. Here he poses with Cynthia Harnisch Breunig, CEO and President of GSSGC, and Girl Scouts at the 2012 B.I.G. Expo.
In his latest newsletter to his constituents, California Assemblyman Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) honors Girl Scouts on their Centennial.
The assemblyman writes, "I am honored to join with so many others to say Congratulations on a long and prestigious history!"
Assemblyman Morrell himself has a prestigious history with Girl Scouts and knows the movement well.
When State Farm Insurance came together with the Girl Scouts to help create Easter baskets for the Foothill Family Shelter and Salvation Army of Redlands, the assemblyman--then a local business leader--jumped on board to support the project.
The assemblyman gave the keynote address to open the inaugural Believe in Girls Expo (B.I.G.) in 2010, where Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council brought together 3,000 girls at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
He returned for the 2012 B.I.G., where he delivered inspirational remarks encouraging over 5,000 girls and volunteers to become leaders in their communities. Assemblyman Morrell stayed to tour the B.I.G. event hall, talk with girls, observe badge-earning activities and visit the scores of exhibits.
B.I.G. surely helped the assemblyman recognize the profound effect Girl Scouts can have on a local community.
As he observed in his newsletter: "The Girl Scouts are teaching the young women in our community to 'think big,' encouraging girls to have dreams and pursue them."
The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council extend a sincere thank-you to Assemblyman Mike Morrell for his years of public service and dedicated support for the local Girl Scouts of the Inland Empire.
