Girl Scout Juniors from Troop 1120 recently hosted a successful panel discussion to fulfill a requirement of their AMUSE Journey. They invited seven powerful ladies to share information about the many different roles that they play.

The girls wanted to understand the many roles women and girls play in the world around them, what leadership skills are needed, and how to overcome obstacles in the world today. The troop invited women in a variety of roles to learn more about them and what it takes to be successful in those roles. The girls developed questions, ran the entire panel, and served lunch.

The troop and panelists gathered to hear the presentations at Doughboy Recreational in Helena-West Helena on Saturday, June 10. The troop is very thankful to the panelists for taking the time out of their busy schedules to work with them and to Doughboy for the use of the space.

The seven panelists were: Tosha Davis, lieutenant with the Arkansas Department of Corrections; Leah Osbahr, chief executive officer at Helena Regional Medical Center; Maggie Howard, Delta Heritage Trail Park interpreter; Angelia Johnson, clerk at U.S. Postal Service (former firefighter); Oney Cross, promotions and special events manager at Isle of Capri Casino; Laurie Evans, co-owner/operator of Evans Farms (former truck driver); Lauren Edgin, Girl Scout; and Barbie Patterson, Girl Scout; Macy Ward, Girl Scout; Heather Clemons, Girl Scout; Dr. Shelia Connolly, associate veterinarian at Delta Regional Animal Hospital with her dog, BB, a clumber spaniel; Destiny Edgin, Girl Scout; and Trinity Edgin, Girl Scout.
