During St. Paul's balmy 45 degree weather on Sunday, I noticed this enterprising young woman selling Girl Scout cookies. 17-year-old Rachel is a high school senior at a local suburban high school and has been in the Girl Scouts for 14 years, since kindergarten. Her sash contains many badges, among them bronze, silver, and gold. The gold, which she just recently earned, required 80 hours of community service. Rachel mentioned that it is equivalent to an Eagle Scout. Okay, Boy Scouters, let's see you match this beautiful young woman.! Judging by her poise and motivation, our future is secure with young women like Rachel.
