The Girl Scout Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

At Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, we are part of a stellar Girl Scout staff. Why do we do what we do? Read on ... these moments fuel the mission for all of us.

Anna rocked it out with Demi

My heart was leaping when I saw Demi Lovato bring Anna on stage! She is one of our PR Stars (last year and again this year) and got the most amazing opportunity to experience being on stage with a microphone in her hand.

Some past and present PR Stars had the opportunity to go to a Demi Lovato concert in Tulsa and we turned it into something we could learn from (stage presence, using a microphone, etc.) - but never DREAMED one of the girls would get a real life moment ON STAGE with Demi!

Can you imagine that moment? WOW! I could not have orchestrated that experience if I had tried ... well, OK, I tried ... but my efforts met with "artists generally do not grant interviews at the BOK Center." I'm just thrilled to think of what that moment has planted in Anna's heart and life.

Her mother said this, and it made my day today:

Thank you so much for the tickets to the Demi Lovato concert. We were 4th row almost Center stage.. GREAT SEATS!!! (Best seats I’ve ever had at a concert… made our experience Wonderful!) Anna was picked to sing “This is Me” with Demi on stage… (I think we are both still in shock!!) How Amazing this opportunity was for her!! (and Me!)

None of this would have happened if it weren’t for Girl Scouts!!!

Thanks again for helping make a memory that will carry her through a lifetime!!! (she was sooo proud.. she only gave her first name on stage!.. just like she was taught at PR Stars)

Thanks again and as always GIRL SCOUTS ROCK!!!!!!

I wonder if Demi was ever a Girl Scout?

Wasn't it? I am still thinking WOW! When we get together to talk about what we learned about stage presence, Anna will have quite a story to tell!
