Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines honored their top sellers for the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program at a luncheon with the council’s CEO at the Hilltop House in Fayetteville, NC.
The top sellers included Emily G. of Hope Mills, NC, Ruth L. of Fayetteville, NC, and Madeline F. of Leland, NC. Emily placed first across the council’s 41 county footprint by selling 5,131 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in the annual cookie program that ended in March. Ruth placed second with 5,033 boxes sold and rounding out the top three, Madeline sold 5,005 boxes.
During the special luncheon, each of the top sellers was presented with a trophy from the North Carolina Coastal Pines council. Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines Chief Executive Officer, Lisa Jones awarded the girls with their trophies and recognized each of the girls for their great efforts during this year’s cookie program. All three of the council’s top sellers broke the 5,000 boxes mark and have sold the most of any top seller the council has ever sold in a single season.
With 2017 marking 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies, girls continue to use the power of the cookie to help build everyday leaders who make the world a better place. Being named a top seller goes beyond what’s in the box as it highlights a girl’s determination to set and achieve goals, develop business and financial literacy skills, and enhance their entrepreneurial spirit. This recognition also demonstrates a girl’s mastery of the five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics as she runs her very own cookie business.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program supports girls in achieving the goals they set for program activities, community service projects and philanthropy, and ensures all girls are afforded access to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
