“As CEO of the Eastern Pennsylvania council, I love the Cookie Program for two reasons: because of the leadership skills girls develop, especially money management and business ethics, but also, of course, because the cookies are delicious!” said Natalye Paquin, CEO of GSEP. “It is a pleasure to partner with local chefs in such a unique way while highlighting what a girl can do when she is given the skills she needs to become a leader.”
GSEP will continue to celebrate via additional community involvement.
