Girl Scouts attend San Jacinto ‘Cookie College’

Andrea Vasquez -- January 17, 2013



PASADENA, Texas – San Jacinto College hosted nearly 130 Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council for the Girl Scout “Cookie College” event. Along with several arts and crafts booths and a cookie “spirit nails” station facilitated by San Jacinto College cosmetology students, the girls also learned about marketing, money management, goal setting, and business etiquette. Annually, thousands of Girl Scouts participate in a leadership development program and historic fundraiser known as the Girl Scout Cookie Sale. Since 1917, the Girl Scout Cookie Sale has helped girls develop important leadership skills they will use throughout their lives.
